Mormon's Prop 8 closet: Meet some new skeletons

by Jeremy Hooper

Surprise, surprise:

SACRAMENTO, Calif.—Mormon church officials say they spent $190,000 more supporting the Proposition 8 gay marriage ban than they previously reported.
...
The report filed Friday with the secretary of state lists church leaders' travel expenses; $20,575 to use facilities and equipment at the church's Salt Lake City headquarters; and $96,849 to pay employees who worked for the ban.

You know that saying about there being no such thing as bad PR? Yea? Well thanks to the sneaky Prop 8 efforts of the Mormon church, your kids may not.

Sadly even though this much poo has hit the fan they're still trying to pretend they're squeaky clean. "$190K isn't a *substantial amount*. We have brazillions of dollars so that's just a drop in the bucket to us. You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread man!"

I've had it up to here with religious groups and bigots who get away with murder.
