I just found this interesting, it gives some perspective on the Twilight hysteria out there.
From the blurb of this facebook group: Gay rights are more important than vampire movies
"10% of Stephanie Meyer's Profits from her popular Twilight series goes to the Mormon Church, who has donated time and money to fight against the rights of gays, particularly over the issue of Prop 8. This group is to raise awareness that seeing New Moon or buying Edward Cullen stickers has a severe negative impact on the gay rights movement. Perhaps the more people know the more they can make a well rounded decision of whether or not to dish out money to the anti-gay rights movement."
Twilight is a multi billion dollar creation, and reaches millions of fans worldwide. 10% of that is...quite a lot.
I knew S. Meyer was mormon, and like many religions, would have some sort of due or tythe to the church, but I never thought about it from that perspective.
Would this change how you feel about Twilight? Even though there is no direct message of anti gay in the books or movies, would this affect you're enjoyment or purchase of the books/movies? As someone who isn't a fan, I'd really like to know :/
