NYT Promotes Myth That Mormons “Tipped The Scale” On Prop 8 Passage

In trying to place the blame[1] for California’s Prop 8, which bans gay marriage in California, on Mormons, the NYT completely ignores contrary evidence[2] that it was the huge number of Obama voters in CA who really tipped the scale in passing the controversial measure. In particular, black voters in CA voted 70%-30% in favor of Prop 8.

You’d think what with the protests that have been sparked nationwide[3] as a result of this vote, and the blame game being played by the protestors, that the NYT would at least try and get the basic facts of this story right … right?
