By now, it's been widely reported that Mormons are providing the bulk of the funding in support of California's Proposition 8, which would ban gay marriage in that state. The Knights of Columbus have been big backers, too.
My question is, why are these groups playing such a big role in California, when gay marriage bans in other states have been largely the province of evangelicals?
This Salt Lake Tribune story, largely about the rift this issue is causing within the LDS, offers one clue. Apparently during an earlier gay marriage fight, the Catholic archbishop of San Francisco reached out to the Mormon leadership.
