Mormon Leader: Prop 8 Backlash Is Like What Happened To Blacks In The 60's

Joe. My. God.: Mormon Leader: The Prop 8 Backlash Is Like What Happened To Blacks In The 60's:
"A Univeristy of Utah historian retorts: 'Were four little Mormon girls blown up in the church at Sunday school? Were there burning crosses planted on local bishops' lawns? Were people lynched and their genitals stuffed in their mouths? By comparing these two things, it diminishes the real violence that African-Americans experienced in the '60s, when they were struggling for equal rights. There is no equivalence between the two.'"

So right!
