NYT: Mormon Church indeed made difference in 8 campaign

~
The New York Times reports how the Mormon Church made the difference in re-banning same-sex marriage in California.
“We’ve spoken out on other issues, we’ve spoken out on abortion, we’ve spoken out on those other kinds of things,” said Michael R. Otterson, the managing director of public affairs for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as the Mormons are formally called, in Salt Lake City. “But we don’t get involved to the degree we did on this.”
Institutions, a fabled French philosopher wrote, gain their power through their scapegoating mechanisms.
