Credit where Credit is Due

Mormons continue to get credit for passing Prop 8.  In Mormons Tipped Scale in Ban on Gay Marriage the New York Times joins the chorus of thought leaders giving the LDS church the distinction of being the main reason Prop 8 passed.  There are some interesting quotes from Michael R. Otterson, the managing director of public affairs for the Church.  Otterson gives a tiny glimpse of  the Church's thinking on Prop 8.  Because the Brethren don’t elaborate much when discussing deliberations concerning their actions, you  find your context where you can.
