Group to protest gay-marriage ban
November 7, 2008
SALT LAKE CITY ” A group of protesters plans to rally in front of the headquarters of the Mormon church over the faith’s support for a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in California.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints encouraged its members to work to pass Proposition 8 by volunteering their time and money for the campaign. California voters approved the measure Tuesday.
The Friday evening protest comes a day after people demonstrated outside a Mormon temple in Los Angeles. About 1,000 gay-marriage supporters waved signs and brought afternoon traffic to a halt.
