“Last week, I labeled members of the Mormon church who supported California’s Proposition 8 as “un-American.” I believe Proposition 8 is counter to the promise of our Constitution; it is codified discrimination. But everyone has a right to vote their conscience – nothing could be more American. To say members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints who contributed to Proposition 8 are “un-American” creates more division when the time calls for respectful disagreement. No one should use “un- American” lightly or in haste. I did. I should not have. Sincerely, Tom Hanks. “
Tom, I am not sure if you ever read my letter. However, as promised, on behalf of myself, and my decorated US Navy Veteran [and Mormon] grandfather, Commander Dallis J. Christensen, your apology is accepted.
We wish you well, and we thank you. – MoSop
