Campaign finance records show The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has made its first financial contribution in support of a Nov. 4 ballot proposition that would ban same-sex marriage in California.
The in-kind donation of $2,078.97 from the LDS Church was made on Oct. 25 to ProtectMarriage.com, a coalition of faith organizations and conservative groups supporting Proposition 8.
The measure would overturn the California Supreme Court ruling that legalized gay marriage.
Jeff Flint, a co-manager of the ProtectMarriage campaign, says the LDS Church made the in-kind donation to cover the travel expenses of several Utah-based church leaders who went to California for a meeting last week.
Flint wouldn't say which church leaders were at the meeting.
