Complaint filed over Mormon aid to Prop. 8

Complaint filed over Mormon aid to Prop. 8

Associated Press - November 13, 2008 6:34 PM ET

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A California gay rights activist has filed a complaint accusing the Mormon church of failing to report the value of the work it did to support the gay marriage ban.

Fred Karger, the founder of Californians Against Hate, submitted the complaint Thursday to the enforcement division of the California Fair Political Practices Commission.

Karger alleges that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ran phone banks, produced commercials and provided other services that must be reported as contributions to the Proposition 8 campaign.

The initiative, which amends the state constitution to ban gay marriage, was approved by voters this month.

Spokeswoman Kim Farah says the church has complied with all campaign finance laws and is confident an investigation will prove that.

If a church receives tax exempt status because they aren't supposed to promote political candidates or political issues, then I guess its fair game to go after the LDS Church. But, if you go after the LDS Church, you're going to have to go after every church that has ever taken a political stance on an issue, including left-wing churches like the Unitarians that are supportive of gay marriage.
