10. The Catholic church I take my elderly parents to every weekend
pulled the same stunt today. They had a husband/wife get up to talk about the sanctity of marriage and then told everyone to vote Yes on 8. Yard signs were available in the back of the church.

It was clearly wrong to mix religion and politics, and upset my 15-year-old so much that she started to cry and walked out. I followed right behind as did another woman.

My 85-year-old mom later said she felt very uncomfortable sitting there listening to it. She has a good friend with two gay kids who is a member of the same church and was sitting just a few rows in front of us. My mom thought it was awful that her friend had to be subjected to that.

Just terrible, and completely inappropriate.
