So I was counting the posts, knowing I was close to 100. Then I got all caught up in PROP8. I wanted to do a contest, so I will, just a little over 100.

with those of you that live outside of California (or outside of the San
Francisco Bay Area).
This weekend we have stake conference. Our stake conference always
begins with a stake temple session on Friday or Thursday night. Early
Friday morning I received a call from the second counselor in our bishopric
to let me know there would be numerous protesters outside the temple,
and to remind everyone to stay calm and drive carefully. The beautiful
Oakland Temple is located right across the bay from San Francisco, very
close to the city of Berkeley.
Apparently the opposition to proposition 8, the amendment that seeks to
make marriage in CA between a man and a woman again, has realized the
deep involvement of the church and begun to protest right outside the
temple and harass temple patrons.
... As we approached the off ramp, I realized there would be trouble.
There was a backup onto the freeway from cars stalled on the off ramp.
As we moved forward inches at a time, we realized this was due to a large
group of loud protesters who were standing on both sides of the street,
yelling, screaming and waving signs. When we got to the top of the offramp,
ready to make our turn, one protester jumped out right in front of our car.
It took my husband all his self control to carefully maneuver around him to
the left and proceed to the temple.
I tried not to listen to all they were shouting at us, but I was shaking as I got
to the temple front door. Several of the sisters, especially the ones driving
on their own, were crying (which made me snap out of it and go into Relief
Society President mode to comfort them). Later, as I was sitting in the perfect
quiet of the chapel, I couldn't help but think of Lehi's dream, and the people
who mocked the Saints from the big and spacious building but 'we heeded
It was a truly surreal experience, I'd never thought that I would have to go
through an angry crowd to get to the temple. As we left late at night, the
protesters had dispersed, temple security (who all looked very large and
Tongan) stood by the gates. I never saw a single police man.
Please pray for those of us in California fighting for prop 8--it's getting kind
of scary out here!

Students! Teachers! Parents!
Join the State-Wide School Sick-Out!
Tuesday Oct. 21st
Protest Peacefully! Show your school how important traditional families are to their survival!
Students, teachers and parents are going to take action regarding Proposition 8 on the same day… Tuesday, October 21st. This story about the California Teachers Association (”CTA”) donating $1 Million to preserve same-sex marriage made many people ill.
1. STUDENTS Many children are coming down with something. Many California public school students are going to be sick and ABSENT FROM SCHOOL on Tuesday, October 21st. This would be a good time for them and their parents to write letters to the editor about how they feel about CTA’s donation. Many are puzzled why the professional group hired to educate them is spending so much money to push their own social agenda.
2. TEACHERS With all those students out sick on Tuesday, October 21st, many California public school teachers intend to DEMAND $300 POLITICAL REFUNDS from their union dues using these instructions here:
The magic number is 3,333. If that many teachers demand political 0D refunds from their union on the same day, CTA will notice because the total amount will equal the million dollars it wasted fighting to neuter marriage. If these 3,030 teachers turn around and donate their $300 refunds to Yes on 8, CTA’s whole cockamamie scheme will have backfired completely.
3. PARENTS Many parents of public school children are going to try to counter CTA’s meddlesome donation on Tuesday, October 21, 2008, by DONATING $35, $50 OR $100 TO Protect Marriage here: https://www.icontribute.us/protectmarriage/initiative/main . Make sure to put “CTA” in the referral box!
CTA President David Sanchez donated over 1 million dollars of our teacher’s money to the No on 8 campaign. These people fought to take away parent’s right to be notified of gay marriage indoctrination in their schools. Get the facts! Let them know your opposition! Make a difference with peaceful protest!
