Please bring a candle
(battery-operated candle and/or tealight instead of a real candle-due
to potential fire hazard).  We know that many churches were involved in
passing Prop 8, and we are not standing at the temple to target Mormons
in general.  Instead, we stand there symbolically.  We feel it's
important to show our unity with the Mormon mothers of gay children, to
show them that they are not alone.  Thus, we want to mirror the candle
rally in Utah that hundreds of Mormon mothers held as a way to, in
solidarity, show that the light (i.e., that all should be treated
equally) is still burning bright among us despite the Mormon Church's
deep involvement, as well as the participation of other churches, in
trying to take this away.  There were approximately 600 people at the
candle rally in Utah.  It'd be great if we could also bring that many
out to this.  If you want to read about the Utah rally, please go to http://www.sltrib.com/ci_10883312  We hope that if the media shows up to this that you will share this reason why we're there.

It's time to come together and show that we aren't going to take the removing of our rights quietly!
