8 The Mormon Proposition movie review

First of all let me applaud those who made this documentary. In these times when our media is bought and sold and the information we receive is determined by who has the most dollars instead of what is the truth, it gives me hope that we can still have a means to reach large audiences with facts they might otherwise never receive. According to official church documents the Mormon church made an unholy alliance with the Catholic church and masterminded this whole political campaign to write discrimination into California's state constitution. When Prop 8 passed it was the first time in California's history that a ballot measure took away rights of a segment of it's population. It is amazing that California only has a 2 % population of Mormons and yet they funded 71% of the campaign. Churches should never be allowed to use their power and influence to write law. This is why we have separation of church and state. Not only did the Mormon church stick their nose in something that was clearly none of their business, but they did it covertly with malice of forethought, and with their power and influence made tv ads that were complete lies and fed them to the general public. Regardless of who you are or what you believe, you should watch this film. If the two most powerful churches in the United States today can band together and commit what can only be categorized as a legalized hate crime, then what and who is next? The implications are frightening for those who choose to open their eyes. So on the Heart Chart 8 gets a 5 out of 5 hearts. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
