LDS – Mormon Church BUSTED As Documents Surface At Prop 8 Trail Prove They Tried To Hide Their Involvement

In an explosive moment at todays Prop 8 Trial a document from the Church of Latter Day Saints to the Proposition 8 campaign was introduced that revealed that contained these instructions:

With respect to Prop. 8 campaign, key talking points will come from campaign, but cautious, strategic, not to take the lead so as to provide plausible deniability or respectable distance so as not to show that church is directly involved.

So in opther words the LDS Church intentionally worked to hide behind the scenes to disguise their involvement in the public realm. The LDS Church is well aware that the general public does not have the most favorable opinion of them. Attention on their involvement could have hurt their cause, namely passing Prop 8.”

Julia Rosen, blogging for the Courage Campaign reports that the attorneys battled over what documents could be revealed as evidence of the coordinated efforts between Prop 8 campaign and Catholic, LDS, and Evangelical churches. Which caused Judge Walker to make the following statement:

 “Not to make light of this, but the reason people want to produce documents is that they are revealing.”
