TWILIGHT AUTHOR STEPHENIE MEYER MORMON

With the huge boxoffice success of "Twilight," it grossed over $70M domestically, this past weekend, not only is Stephenie Meyer making tons of money so is the Mormon church. Stephenie Meyer, described as the "the Mormon Anne Rice," does what any good Mormon does which is called tithing. Tithing is a requirement in the Mormon religion and it's usually 10% of their earnings. So, with all the talk about the Mormon church being a huge supporter of Prop 8, it seems like "Twilight" and Stephanie Meyer are contributors as well.

The book was absolutely amazing and and the film is equally great. Not as good as the book though. I am going to watch twilight again...

The word "tithe" denotes a tenth part, given for the service of God. The law of tithing is found in the Bible, and many different types of churches ask their members to give 1/10 of their earnings. In Genesis 28:20, it reads, "And Jacob vowed a avow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on,
21 So that I come again to my father’s house in peace; then shall the a Lord be my God:
22 And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God’s house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the atenth unto thee."
Why the unnecessary attack on Stehenie Meyer's religion?

I don't think this is an attack on Stephanie Meyer's religion as much as it is a defense of civil rights. The Mormon Church, of which Meyers is a devout member and faithful contributor, is responsible for 77% of the money raised to pass Prop 8. If one is against Prop 8, it only makes sense to boycott anything that may contribute to it. Stephanie Meyer has never said where she stands on Prop 8, but knowing that she does tithe (which she has said in interviews), and how the Mormon church is using those monies to fuel hate and deprive people of their civil rights, you won't see me touching any of her books.

I suggest that you watch 8: the Mormon Proposition.
