All Spencer Jones and Tyler Barrick wanted to do was get married. And when California voters passed a law allowing same-sex marriage, they did just that. But Spencer and Tyler aren't just a gay married couple; they're Mormon. 8: THE MORMON PROPOSITION painstakingly details how the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, fueled by money and fanned by religious fervor, waged a successful battle in November 2008 to reverse California's same-sex marriage law. Everyone - same-sex couples, Mormon Church leaders, and Utah politicians - gets a chance to make their case for or against Prop 8, and the result is an emotionally charged, behind-the-scenes look at how a powerful religious organization used manipulation and its authority to influence the outcome of a controversial political issue. – C.K.
