The LDS church’s role in passing Proposition 8 was scrutinized by the Salt Lake Tribune today. Truth Wins Out pointed out the hypocrisy of Evangelical leaders teaming up with the Mormons to attack gays, since the LDS faith is routinely maligned by these new “friends”. TWO founder Wayne Besen commented in the article.
“These new defenders of the Mormon faith have long been the most prolific Mormon-bashers in the nation,” said Wayne Besen, executive director of the Brooklyn-based gay-rights group Truth Wins Out. “[The two groups] have nothing in common but their anti-gay rhetoric.”
