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.
