Nobody expects the Mormon Inquisition

On Thursday, the LDS Church called on those involved in the debate over same-sex marriage to "act in a spirit of mutual respect and civility toward each other. No one on either side of the question should be vilified, intimidated, harassed or subject to erroneous information."

NOBODY expects the Mormon Inquisition!
Our chief weapon is vilification...intimidation and harassment...intimidation and vilification....
Our two weapons are vilification and intimidation ... and erronous information....
Our three weapons are vilification , intimidation , and erronous information...
and an almost fanatical devotion to the Prophet....
Our four... no...
Amongst our weapons... Amongst our weaponry...
are such elements as vilification, erronous information...
I'll come in again.

(Exit and exeunt)

Innocent, though gay, bystander:
I didn't expect a kind of Mormon Inquisition.

how exactly is this like the spanish inquisition? can you explain?

i don't think there is anything wrong with religion influencing culture. doesn't hollywood influence culture?

doesn't oprah influence culture? what exactly is the difference?

prop 8 did not take away any rights from same-sex couples. they are equal under the law. (federal law is different but even if prop 8 had failed-- it wouldn't have changed this situation).

Proposition 8 invalidated 18,000 people's marriages; I'd say that a right was taken away.

Besides, the Mormon church told everyone in Utah to vote for Prop. 3 in 2004 which disallowed any sort of benefits for same-sex couples. Why spend 22 million dollars and thousand of Mormon-hours if you don't think you're getting any benefit?

Prop8 clearly didn't the funny reference, haha.

Although I don't agree with the vandalism going on, I think the church does deserve the protests and complaining it caused.
