And Now I Am Crying

That doesn't even sound legal -- to make a donation in some else's name without they're consent. I'm livid!

I know it is hard, but don't let it get to you. I read that and laugh because you know what? Yes, the Mormon church stepped up and did what was RIGHT in this case (along with more than half of CA). We did nothing wrong, and in fact, we did something clearly right for them to have taken such a notice. Yes, the Mormon church stood strong and I am proud to say I was part of that. I don't think Pres. Monson is going to lose any sleep over those postcards should he really receive any. It is NOT just the Mormons who passed this-it is a whole lot of people beyond that. We know that and they know that, they just have sour grapes. Funny, if only they knew who Pres. Monson really is...a prophet of the Lord who speaks for the Lord today.

Oh Liz- I'm SO sorry. I was talking to my friend tonight from Boston about all this mess. We were saying how if it didn't pass the Mormons wouldn't be protesting as much. But why do the Mormons have to be the target of it all!! It was also minorities who went in to cast their vote for Obama- and other churches too! It makes us so sad and we are sorry that you are in the midst of all of it. My friend was sad too because she said living in Massachusetts you really can see a difference since they passed the law legalizing it. It isn't just about rights. It changes SO much.
