Mormons behind passage of ENDA? Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

First, who knew there were 7 members of the Church if Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the US Senate? I knew Harry Reid was one, but Dean Heller too? Both senators from Nevada are Mormons? Proportionally, there should only be a Mormon or two in he Senate, but that's another topic for another post. I sound this alarm as a former Mormon. I know Mormons. My family is still Mormon. Mormons don't do anything without an ulterior motive. Nothing. That seven Mormon Senators voted for ENDA shows that there was a concerted and covert movement. Six of those 7 are Republicans, and it is not only shocking that they crossed party lines to support anything gay, but that they are willing to take the heat for a Church position means that something is coming from the Mormons, something so bad that they felt the need to get out in front of it, to have something to point to and say, "We voted for ENDA! We're not bad people, see..." Now, you have to understand that Mormons have long believed that they would save the US when it is hanging by a thread, and that would endear them to American hearts. The "White Knight Prophecy" is how it's known in Mormon circles, and for a while, it looked like Mitt Romney was going to be that knight who would come riding to DC to save the nation (although from what I cannot say). Perhaps the new asshole that we gays ripped Mormons after prop 8 is still stinging, although if they wanted to make amends for that one, they could stop funding NOM. Perhaps the current furor over the NSA and spying on Americans has the Mormons worried (the NSA's multi-billion dollar new spying facility is located in Bluffdale, Utah) and they're trying to mitigate what could be a PR disaster. And the Mormons are not stupid; they see that gays are Obama's second-largest and most ardent group of supporters, and they are clearly trying to curry favor given that Obama has 3 more years, and the political scene nationally indicates a Democratic president for the foreseeable future. But there is something else going on. There it's something that the Mormons want, we don't know what it is, and it must be big.
