Why are homosexuals in Los Angeles surrounding Mormon churches and protesting outside them? Because they consider the church responsible for the passage of Prop. 8, which bans homosexual marriage in the state.
Now compared to other western states, I doubt if there are a lot of Mormons in LA or California for that matter. Certainly not in numbers that would make a huge impact in the popular vote on an issue or campaign as they would in say, Utah.Â Indeed, the reason Prop. 8 passed was due to percentage of African-American and Hispanics that voted for it, upwards towards 70 percent.
But these protesters are not in South Central or East Los Angeles outside Baptist or Catholic churches are they? No, they’re picking on the Mormons because they knowÂ can get away with it. After all, who in LA are going stick up for the largely white (although in LA you’ll probably find a lot of Polynesian Mormons), small community with the beliefs everyone, even conservatives, find wacky?
Â Like bullies they go after the weak because these largely white homosexuals areÂ scared they might be called bigots and racistsÂ if they protested in South Central or East LA (they also might get beat up or shot as well). Yet in their cowardice their bigotry still shows through.
