Proposition Hate

I'm happy to hear that not too many Mormons in Park City, Utah, got their magic underpants in a wad on Sunday at the Sundance Film Festival premiere of "8: The Mormon Position," the new documentary about the Mormon church's role in a 2008 California political battle over gay marriage. The film -- directed by Reed Cowan, a former Utah Mormon -- contends that the locally based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was the driving force behind Proposition 8.

Watch the gripping trailer below:

At the end of the trailer, it says "a film about how/how..." is the second "how" there for emphasis? It almost reads like a proofreading trick.

Nitpicking aside, it looks really interesting. I'd love to see it.

Given the revealing documentation that has come out of Perry v. Schwarzenegger, to protest this documentary at this point would be really foolish.
