"While the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center organized a peaceful demonstration against the involvement of the leadership of the Mormon Church in the deceitful Yes on Prop 8 campaign, we decry the use or threat of violence. Just as the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community seeks the right to be treated equally under the law, all Americans should have the right to live lives free from fear and violence."

-- The L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center's Chief of Staff, Darrel Cummings, after the Mormon temple in Los Angeles received an envelope containing white powder. The powder was not toxic and no threats or demands were issued.
