SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Members of a group of Mormons who support
gay marriage say they plan to deliver 300 protest letters and a petition to church headquarters.
The group disagrees with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' support for California's Proposition 8, which would amend the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage.
The proposition would overturn the California court ruling that legalized gay marriage. The Mormon church is part of a coalition of faiths and conservative groups working to pass the proposition.
The dissident Mormons say their church is forcing its morality on others. Their petition says it's wrong to "mingle religious influence with civil government."
