(KCPW News) The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints involvement in the successful battle against gay marriage in California drew national attention and protesters to temples both in California and right here in Salt Lake City. Church members donated time and millions of dollars to the campaign after a letter urging them to support Proposition 8 was read in wardhouses across the state. The church argues it was just one member of a broad coalition of religious groups that opposes gay marriage, and was just speaking up for religious liberty. But its detractors say it went too far and have even questioned whether its non-profit status should be revoked. Meanwhile, it continues to be no secret that Church officials are sometimes the elephant in the room when it comes to legislative policy here in the state. Lawmakers are on Capitol Hill even as we speak crafting that policy for the next year. How far is too far when it comes to religious involvement in government? Joining the show to answer that question is Reverend Barry Lynn, Executive Director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
