I don't know which is bigger news: that Salt Lake City activists' Kiss-In concept has prompted a call for a national Kiss-In scheduled for Aug. 15, or that at least one organizer of that national demonstration proposed targeting "Mormon churches" all across the country with all those smooches. ---
It appears the organizers have ditched the "Mormon church" idea and are now calling for Kiss-Ins in any public place.
Activist and blogger David Badash wrote on New Civil Rights Movement July 13 that "Mormon churches" should be targeted by the Kiss-In.
And it’s important we do it in an organized, public, non-confrontational, but well-publicized manner. Which means, in front of Mormon Churches.
The national Kiss-In will be protesting the harassment of three gay couples since February who have had run-ins with the law as a result of PDAs, including Salt Lake City's Jones/Aune who were detained by LDS Church security July 10. The other two incidents had no known LDS connection.
Join The Impact has information on a Aug. 15 Boston Kiss-In and promises more will be scheduled.
A Kiss-In at San Diego's LDS Temple is scheduled for tonight.
I wonder if SLC kissers have any juice left Aug. 15 for what would be this city's third Kiss-In in about a month.
