Mormons Didn't Want to be "Out Front"

But now they are! And I'm sure they're freaking about it. Look at this story, which reveals a document showing the Mormons were focused on same-sex marriage from ten years ago in order to get visibility and acceptance in the larger religious right. They planned on "partnering" with the Catholic Church but their leader warned against getting "out front."

That's why this demo is all the more important -- it puts them in a place they didn't want to be, but which they suddenly found themselves: Out front. I bet there's a lot of hand wringing going on in Salt Lake City!
