Takng a courageous stance

Through a diary by Andrew Callahan at Daily Kos I see that a number of Mormons are writing letters, signing petitions, and in some cases formally resigning from the church over the promotion of discrimination through sponsorship of Prop 8.

Check out the blog Signing for Something where you can read this:
Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been taught, “We do not believe it just to mingle religious influence with civil government …” (Doctrine and Covenants 134:9). Recent action taken by the First Presidency in support of a constitutional amendment in the State of California has rallied us to the cause of freedom.

My prayers, support, and gratitude for these brave souls.
