Prop 8 protests increasing in the LA area with help of Facebook.

The Prop 8 protests are continuing and spreading through out the area.  Facebook would be the last place I’d expect to find a lot of information, but specific ways to do so keep showing up there every day.  Two in particular have caught my attention.  One is a Protest March set for this evening in Long Beach staged at 3 locations along Broadway Avenue.  

The other is a direct attack on one of the large out-of-state contributors to the Yes on 8 side, the Mormon Church.  Our own Jozjozjoz reported early on that Pepperdine came out supporting Prop 8 which in turn lead to a Facebook group calling themselves  PEPPERDINE UNIVERSITY ALLOWS THEMSELVES TO BE PART OF YES ON 8.  They have asked people to contact the IRS demanding the Mormon churches non-profit status be revoked for their meddling roll in the Prop 8 campaign.
