The message is a worthwhile one, but I'm not sure it needed a feature-length doc to tell it. There are some compelling stories of those affected by the church's actions, but they are muddled by text and figures that get a little tiresome.

I was ultimately disappointed, but it is worth seeing, especially for those involved in the cause. Expand

I find it amusing that there are some that try and fling feces at this documentary because it 'vilifies' the Mormon Church. However, upon watching this documentary, they vilified themselves.

However, upon watching this documentary, they vilified themselves. These are their emails, their records, their audio, their web ads, their television ads. This was a relatively rough and unrefined documentary, but the mechanics aside, it was informative and serves as a sharp wake-up call to all Americans of what bad religion, far too much money, and fanaticism can do to our politics and our freedoms. This is one of the things the Founding Fathers tried to prevent by keeping Church and State separate. It is only through issues like Prop 8 and this documentary that we are forcibly reminded of the need to disentangle the two as was meant to be originally. Expand

Another pathetic attempt to blame "Mormons" for preventing gay marriage when it is the majority of Americans that do not support gay marriage. Certainly the members of the LDS church were involved in protesting gay marriage, but so were Another pathetic attempt to blame "Mormons" for preventing gay marriage when it is the majority of Americans that do not support gay marriage. Certainly the members of the LDS church were involved in protesting gay marriage, but so were thousands of other people from different faiths or Christian denominations. This film maker seems determined to prove that religion is bad (specifically Mormons) and that gays are the victim here. Pathetic indeed. Expand

This is completely one-sided. A gay person's attempt at making it seem like it was the "Mormon" church that was solely responsible for Prop 8. It fails to acknowledge that it isn't the church at all but thousands of Christians from This is completely one-sided. A gay person's attempt at making it seem like it was the "Mormon" church that was solely responsible for Prop 8. It fails to acknowledge that it isn't the church at all but thousands of Christians from all different denominations that were involved in denying gays to marry. This whole issue has nothing to even do with equal rights. The film maker needs to stop feeling so upset because he can't marry his boyfriend and recognize that the majority of people do not support gay marriage. Until a film is made that does not point the finger at one group against gay marriage then there won't be one worth watching. Expand

California's Prop 8 impacted the lives of real people. The film explores that impact and provides background as to why the Mormon community felt that it needed to bankroll the election. The film had some rough transitions, but overall California's Prop 8 impacted the lives of real people. The film explores that impact and provides background as to why the Mormon community felt that it needed to bankroll the election. The film had some rough transitions, but overall the message was sobering. It is scary what otherwise good people can do when they think that God is on their side. Expand
