Video: “8 – The Mormon Proposition”, LDS, And Anti-Gay Teachings


This is one highly touted documentary film that will make many sit up and pay attention. 

The Mormons made a choice.  As usual it was the wrong choice.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints plays a starring role in a new Sundance Film Festival documentary about the 2008 ballot initiative that successfully banned gay marriage in California.

Miami-area filmmaker Reed Cowan’s “8: The Mormon Proposition,” premieres Sunday at the Park City festival.

The film contends the LDS Church built on decades of anti-gay teachings to justify its political activism and tried to hide its role as the driving force behind the coalition of conservatives that helped pass Proposition 8. The proposition reversed an earlier court ruling legalizing gay marriage.
