'8: The Mormon Propostition': A First Step At Tackling Casa Video's Documentary Section

Posted on Sat, Sep 15, 2012 at 12:01 PM

Casa Video's documentary section is almost endless. Last time I was there, I spent close to an hour reading the synopses on the back of a ridiculous amount of DVD's. Time flies when there are too many damn good options.

I ended up choosing 8: The Mormon Proposition. In spirit of the upcoming presidential elections, and considering Mitt Romney has not shown any support to the LGBT community, I thought this documentary would enlighten me as to why.

In short: the documentary brings to light documents, recordings and interviews dealing with the Mormon Church and its involvement with funding Prop 8 and blocking anything that would benefit the LGBT community. I mean, these people went out of their way — as far as spending mega millions — to stomp and spit on even a thought of equality for the LGBT community.

The Mormon Church is not alone in this fight, of course. But it was very interesting to learn about them specifically. Also, what about polygamy?

Watch the trailer. And, here's a critic's response to the doc. Make a trip to Casa, grab a bag of their free popcorn and rent a copy.
