A basic tenet of Mormonism is that their prophet-leader, in this case Thomas Monson is daily in touch with God and what he says is the word of God. After U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker released his decision in the matter of the constitutionality of California's Proposition 8, it would appear that Thomas Monson wasn't listening to God when he authorized the expenditure of some 30 million dollars by church members to support the passage of the Mormon Proposition against Gay-Lesbian civil marriage.

Another basic tenant of Mormon doctrine is that God guided the framers of the constitution and that it is the will of God for democracy in America. Judge Walker's ruling in favor of the 14th Amendment rights of Due Process and equality for all Americans regardless of gender strikes right at the heart of Mormon doctrine. Either the Constitution is the will of God or Thomas Monson was listening (if at all) to a false god when he called upon church members to give their all to support his notion of god's will.

If Monson wants the civil laws of the land to conform to religious thoughts and practices, he should advise all his members to move to Iran, or any other Muslim country where Shari'ah law is administered. Fortunately we live in a land where church and state are constitutionally separated and any attempt to improperly influence religious thought into law of the land will be dealt with by constitutional courts and demurred to.

In the meantime, as a former Mormon who taught church leaders about racial equality in 1976 which they historically accepted in 1978, the rights of homosexual couples in America to equality under the law may not be tampered with any further. Wake up and get the church out of politics Mr. Monson.

With my legal background, I would support the establishment of a class action against Monson, the First Presidency, the Corporation of the President, the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, the Council of the Seventies and Presiding Bishopric of the church to recover the monies wasted in improperly interfering with the rights of a minority class.

Any Mormons who have so wasted their hard earned money who would like to recover it based upon fraudulent influence just contact me I would be pleased to organize such an effort!
