Oh I didn't mean to imply that Prop 8 is Mormon law, just they were the most determined backer. A lot of money came from out of state to get Prop 8 on the ballot and propagandized in commercials and finally defended in court (the state refused to defend it eventually). A big part (almost half) of the funding was pushed by the Mormon church. Nice separation of church and state there, eh? They were not only laughed out of court, but should have their tax exempt status removed.

In 2010, the California Fair Political Practices Commission fined the LDS church for failing to follow campaign disclosure policies during the last two weeks leading up to the election, which amounted to $37,000 in non-monetary contributions. They were fined $5,538
