[regarding LDS Apostle Dallin Oaks' recent remarks on anti-Mormon backlash after Prop 8]
[H]e is referring to the campaign targeting known and presumed Prop 8 supporters. This campaign sought to punish such supporters.
The purpose of punishment is behaviour modification.
And what is the behaviour that the "gay" jihad seeks to modify? Is it meaningfully comparable to burning people at the stake?
No, it is not. The behaviour in question consists in (1) advocating in the public square, and (2) voting for a legislative measure the punishers disapprove of.
That is it, and that is all of it.
You understand, it's not that they object to anyone being a Mormon; it's just that they don't want us being Mormons in public. When it comes to questions of public policy, we are supposed to be good little dhimmis and keep our beliefs out of the ballot box.
