Yes, there probably would be a repeal effort against any version of a trans rights bill – whether a legitimate one or the one that Free State Just Us, er…, Inequality Maryland, er…, ‘Equality’ Maryland is pushing against the wishes of those Maryland trans people who aren’t so well-monied that even the current status quo doesn’t really affect them – but do you really think that Mormon, Inc., would have hopped in Prop 8-style?
We figured the Mormon Church’s leadership was working to kill the marriage law in Maryland. Now, we’ve got evidence. The Mormon Church took the lead role in repealing California’s marriage law through Prop. 8. Now, they’re gearing up to do the same thing in Maryland if the marriage law passes.
From LDSmag.org, which touts itself as “Latter-day Saints Shaping Their World,” comes the evidence that the Mormon Church is backing the effort to repeal Maryland’s marriage law, if it passes:
Family Leader Maryland is looking for volunteers to help collect signatures for a referendum if the same-sex marriage bill passes the Maryland Legislature.
I’m just askin’.
