Mormons Called Upon to Discriminate Against Gay Couples in God's Name

The Mormon Church - which has a long and proud history of defining marriage as a sacred union between one man and n women - is calling on its members to reject marriage equality. Not shocking, as the Church is still largely conservative, and has never been part of the social justice vanguard. Still, it's surprising that they would only sign on to the anti-marriage quality cause now, with the victory in California seeming to turn the public tide of opinion in that state.
