Activist Launches Mitt Romney Ads

Californians Against Hate recently launched an ad campaign asking New Hampshire and Massachusetts residents to lobby former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney to use his influence to stop the Mormon Church's interference with marriage equality.

"We would hope that the Mormon Church would take a vow of political neutrality on gay marriage, just like they pledge in partisan politics," said the organization's leader, Fred Karger.

The online ads mention a 15-year campaign against marriage equality by the Mormon Church, including contributions of tens of millions of dollars in 31 states in efforts to ban same-sex marriage. The ads also ask church leaders to take a politically neutral stance on LGBT rights in general.

"Mormon Church leaders should take a vow of political neutrality on gay rights, similar to their stated practice in partisan elections," the ads say.

"Mitt Romney should ask Mormon Church president Thomas S. Monson to use the church's millions to help Haiti, not to further hate," Karger said.
