Arizona Amendment hits the news

It appears that the news media is finally getting into the discussion of the Marriage Amendment. On September 17, the Arizona Daily Star ran the following on line article:

It is unfortunate that those opposing Proposition 102 have to resort to bigotry and anti-Mormon tactics in their campaign. It is further, even more unfortunate that a member of the Arizona legislature would become involved in an attack on one particular faith. To repeat the position of the LDS Church as expressed in the Divine Institution of Marriage:

"The Church does not condone abusive treatment of others and encourages its members to treat all people with respect. However, speaking out against practices with which the Church disagrees on moral grounds – including same-sex marriage – does not constitute abuse or the frequently misused term “hate speech.” We can express genuine love and friendship for the homosexual family member or friend without accepting the practice of homosexuality or any re-definition of marriage.

  1. The anti-Prop 102 group is using the same fallacious arguments used here in Florida. I find it funny that many people who think they are the most open-minded are really the most closed-minded. They are only open-minded when they agree with you.
