I just received an email about protests outside the Oakland Temple that are interfering with and intimidating temple patrons. The local police are not responding well, so we need to appeal to a higher authority.
The protests are regarding California's Proposition 8, which would define marriage as between one man and one woman.
Regardless of where you stand on the gay marriage issue, no one should be able to interfere with our temple privileges though disruption and intimidation. Please join us in praying for an end to the protests and the strengthening of the Church members in the Oakland Temple District.
Please spread the word by passing this on...
