Shocker: Mormon-run paper w/ NOM cofounder on Advisory Board opposes SCOTUS rulings

by Jeremy Hooper

The Deseret News is strongly affiliated with the Mormon Church which, as you surely know, was a major force behind Proposition's 8's passage. Unless something has changed since 2011, the paper also counts National Organization For Marriage co-founder Robert George (and others with NOM ties) as a member of its Editorial Advisory Board.

Which is why my way of saying that you should take this with the biggest grain of salt you can possibly find:

In our opinion: Ruling in DOMA case needless, thoughtless, damaging [Deseret News]

In a related and equally shocking story, The New York Times editors think the Chrysler Building is kind of pretty.
