Planning ahead....the Draper Temple open house will run from mid-January to mid-March. Free tickets can be obtained at lds.org - go to Family History and Temples > Temples around the world. Alphabetical search is easiest so click that option on the left sidebar and scroll to Draper, Utah. Open house information/reservations can be done there. (Or, as usual, click on this post title to be taken there directly)
The Becket Fund is taking a stand against attacks on the LDS Church for its position on families - Prop 8.
"The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty is a nonprofit, interfaith, public-interest law firm that defends the free public expression of all faiths. Our clients have included Agnostics, Amish, Baptists, Buddhists, Catholics, Episcopalians, Hindus, Jews, Methodists, Mormons, Muslims, Santeros, Sikhs, Unitarians, and Zoroastrians, among many others. We have represented religious and civil rights organizations that are on both sides of the same-sex marriage debate.If you would like to add your name to the list of those opposed to LDS attacks over political freedom, you can read here http://www.nomobveto.org/
The Becket Fund does not take a position on whether same-sex marriage should be legally recognized. The Becket Fund does defend the right of religious people and organizations to speak out on the issue—whatever their viewpoint—without fear of intimidation or violent retribution."
