Of course they make it sound like a conscience issue, with churchgoers free to make their own determinations. But (1) this is a legislative matter involving civil marriage, not a church issue; (2) we all know that the religious protections they are telling churchgoers to seek are often used to derail marriage equality bills. So let's be clear about what this is: yet another LDS overreach on our civil rights.

More will surely develop in the days to come. But in the meantime—nice work, Fred!
