The film's powerful correlative lesson? That citizen journalism will play an important role in outing big-money political players who would like to silently put their stamp on laws from the capitalistic safety of the shadows.
From the hard facts of the church's PR wrangling and shady financial reporting, to the human fallout of their treatment of gays both inside and outside their flock, the filmmakers hammer hard on the Mormon church.
A compelling look at how the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints operates in the political arena, even if audiences come away knowing that writer-producer-director Reed Cowan has told the story from his biased point of view.
As an exposť, there could hardly be a stronger case for ensuring and strengthening the separation of church and state -- or a stronger message to gay people as to the magnitude of the challenge to win equal rights.
The Mormon Proposition is about as subjective as documentaries get. The good news is that Cowan and Greenstreet are compelling enough to convince you that only one side of this debate deserves a voice.
