Mormon church wanted ‘plausible deniability’ on anti-gay effort

From the article:

"The line where the LDS Church stopped and the ProtectMarriage.com campaign began was so fuzzy as to subsume the distinction"

What we all knew already; now with the paper trail. How sad, but as it stands, I doubt the public at large will hear nor care. The problem partly is because the mormons are not in the radar at the moment. The Texas FLDS has long since been forgotten. Too bad there isn't some current scandal that involved fundamental behaviors of some splinter group that is shining a light on them. That said, it is grim satisfaction to know that two religious institutions, in a fight to stay relevant would seek to push society backward rather than adopt to a changing society.
i really like your last sentence Edward. "in a fight to stay relevant"
Now is this word 'fuzzy' being used to throw off the trail of LD$ Inc or is it a slip of the tongue talking about that damn 'warm fuzzy feeling' that we used to let ourselves be tricked into thinking it was the ghost?

What a slimy church and religion this Mormon cult is, as is many other religions.
"How sad, but as it stands, I doubt the public at large will hear nor care."

Maybe. This will almost certainly be a landmark trial and the case will go to the Supreme court. If it can be shown that Prop 8 passed primarily because religious groups (LDS or not) had their fingers all over it, then it will only help demonstrate that its passage is unconstitutional. This seems to have sent up a huge flare to anyone following the gay marriage debate, whether they cared about the LDS church or not. Even before this, the church was being mocked in mainstream media for their participation in Prop 8. It may only get worse.

They just meant that the LDS Church is so heavily involved that it's almost impossible to distinguish it from ProtectMarriage.com at large. In other words, LDS Church was the single biggest player, behind the scenes, and this might have legal consequences.
I can imagine what you predict may in fact be true. I am watching to see how it will turn out. I guess I am just pessimisstic because there is such a strong fundamentalist streak in this country now. Imagine, California being one of the most liberal states is the battleground now. If this does get to the Supreme Court, I do believe it will be struck down as unconstitutional.
