  New Nebraska Defense of Marriage Group Formed to get LDS Out-of-State Money
The new group supporting Nebraska's Defense of the Marriage Act was started after the initial committee refused an offer of $600,000 from members of the LDS Church, according to a new article in the Lincoln Journal Star, which first wrote about the group's formation last week. The original group supporting the act, the Defense of the Marriage Act Committee, collected more than 156,000 signatures to get the petition on the November ballot, but turned down the money because it had earlier promised to solicit funds only in Nebraska.

  An LDS Candidate's Hunger Strike for Debate
If you think it is not fair that US presidential candidate Ralph Nader has been excluded from the presidential debates, you may also agree with Jeremy Friedbaum. The candidate for Governor of Utah from the conservative Independent American Party is on a 40-day hunger strike seeking a place in the debates between Republican incumbent Governor Mike Leavitt and his Democratic challenger Bill Orton. Like Leavitt and Orton, Friedbaum is an LDS Church member.
