Keating jive: LDS sure chose some strange Prop 8 bedfellows

by Jeremy Hooper

-National Organization For Marriage affiliate Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse has made multiple appearances.

-During the Mormon-heavy Prop 8 fight, Brian Brown and Maggie Gallagher made a joint appearance (6/30/2008).

-NOM's General Counsel, Charles LiMandri, also appeared during that Prop 8 summer in a segment all about the same-sex marriage debate.

-Bishop Salvatore Cordileone, who folks like Maggie Gallagher cite as "the father of Prop 8," used to have a semi-regular "ask a canon lawyer" segment on the show.


The radio show in question: "Catholic Answers Live"

The founder and president of Catholic Answers: Karl Keating

Keating's views on the Mormon allies who his side relied on for Prop 8 "victory"? Well, have a look:

What Catholics Don’t Know Can Hurt Them

Think the Mormons are just a group of nice folks who uphold family values, clean living, and American patriotism? Think again.

Think the Mormons are just a slightly eccentric offshoot of traditional Protestant Christianity? Think again.

Think Mormons are actually Christian, accepting the core doctrines of Christianity? Think again!

The truth is that Mormonism is far different from what most people think it is.

If asked, most Catholics would not be able to explain what Mormons believe. Nor do they have a clue what is wrong with Mormonism.

Therein lies the danger—especially today, as Mormonism is enjoying a resurgence in popularity and interest, largely because of recent news coverage.

But the news media aren’t providing useful information about Mormonism.

This worries me—because, as I said, the majority of converts to Mormonism are ill-informed Catholics who are highly vulnerable to Mormon proselytizing.

That’s why Catholic Answers is trying to head off a potential disaster among Catholics.

And we’re going to need your help to make this new project successful.

Here’s what it’s all about …

What Mormons Really Believe

There are many problems with the Mormon religion. In fact, the problems are so numerous, we had to write a special report just to explain and refute them all
