Mormon church officials have now disclosed $190,000 in contributions to the Yes on Prop 8 campaign… this is up from $30K reported earlier in the week.

The church had previously denied any financial support for the campaign beyond a $2000 expense for a visiting Elder of the church.

The report, filed with the secretary of state’s office, listed a variety of California travel expenses for high-ranking members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and included $20,575 for use of facilities and equipment at the church’s Salt Lake City headquarters and a $96,849 charge for “compensated staff time” for church employees who worked on matters pertaining to Prop. 8.

“This is exactly what we were talking about when we filed the suit,” said Fred Karger of Californians Against Hate, which opposed the same-sex marriage ban. “They spent money on the campaign and were supposed to report it.”

Church officials have yet to comment.

New Annie Lennox video: Shining Light

This beautifully trippy video is from Annie’s brand new single Shining Light off her upcoming greatest hits album The Annie Lennox Collection. A high production throwback to the early 70’s, Shining Light is a cover of the 2001 single by the alternative British pop band Ash.

Isn’t it so nice to see Annie doing a bit of “dress-up” again? Just like the old days.

The album is set for release February 17 in the U.S. and March 9 in Europe.

GayAtheist revealed a document this morning providing proof that the Church of Latter Day Saints donated $30,354.85 to on 11/3/2008, the day prior to the election. The Late Contribution Report was not filed until January 15, 2009.

View the Late Contribution Report.

They cannot hide behind the lies any longer. This is probably one of the main reasons why filed a lawsuit asking that late Prop 8 donors not be disclosed publicly, which was thrown out yesterday. It also adds even more credibility to the charges leveled by Fred Karger of Californians Against Hate and the investigation by the CFFP.

I know what you’re thinking… Why the heck am I posting something like this? Well, I am gay you know.. so I’m entitled.
