If you can't stand the heat, etc, etc...

Proposition 8 in California would amend the state constitution to eliminate same sex marriage. It's on the knife's edge in the polls and no one has a satisfactory answer about what it would do to the rights of gay couples who are already married. The primary organizing force and most of the money - $20 million - behind the yes on Prop 8 operation is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

The Mormons are committing considerable time, effort and money to an attempt to strip away existing legal rights of gays and lesbians in California.

The context for this ad from the No on Prop 8 forces:

The Mormons are deeply offended that the 'no' forces would stoop to such bigotry in response to their own deeply respectful attempt to make them second class citizens.
