Not really...

Over at the Volokh Conspiracy, Todd Zywicki discusses the role of Mormons in passing Proposition 8 in California. He writes:
I should have noted that given the unusual history of Mormons in the United States and their periodic struggles with polygamist schism groups, it is easy to understand why the mainstream Mormon Church would have a particular interest in opposing efforts to weaken the traditional definition of marriage.
I would think that "given the unusual history of Mormons" they would be more understanding of other peoples' definitions of marriage, and not so quick to impose their (hardly consistent) idea of marriage on others.
