October 15th 2010, is the big day at 3:30pm at the Church Office Building in downtown Salt Lake City.
The time has arrived for delivery of the first batch of signed petitions, along with their sorrowful stories of remorse for choosing to leave loved ones out of their weddings rather than break the mold and choose a civil wedding. There are stories too of those who would rather wait the year than do anything to hurt their loved ones; knowing full well that those same loved ones would submit their names for marriage sealing, should any accident befall them before that year was complete.
We have received no response from our request to deliver, but feel sure that the Church will not turn down the opportunity to receive requests for help from well over 400 people from over 5 different countries, 26 States, several Canadian provinces and representing approximately 16 denominations; about 20% of whom are LDS. More precise figures will be posted after the delivery as the names keep rolling in and we want them to be up do date.
We will have news coverage for the event which is to be a peaceful and dignified affair; befitting the seriousness of our request. Those who feel that they would like to join us for the delivery please be at the Church Office Building prior to 3:30pm; keeping in mind our stated objective of a peaceful event.
Many thanks to all those who have been brave enough to step up to the plate and let the Church leaders know the pain they are causing by this unnecessary policy.
