One of the most interesting things about this and other statements by the LDS church regarding marriage equality is how a church that has no democratic process whatsoever as part of its organization or practices incessantly complains that a court performing its constitutional role is undermining democracy. The businessmen and lawyers who make up the bulk of the LDS hierarchy know that one of the pillars of the American republic is to protect the rights of a minority against a misguided majority vote. How quickly some Mormons forget their own history in appealing for the protection of the courts when majorities have engaged in fearmongering and un-American discrimination against them. This isn't just hypocrisy. It's continued willful ignorance and selective application of the law.
The LDS church's supply of paint seems to be endless. However, the corner keeps getting smaller.
