NO-on-Prop-8 Signs at 49er Steve Young’s Home

Twenty million dollars in Mormon contributions to Prop 8 notwithstanding, one of the Bay Area’s most prominent Mormons and a Bay Area sports hero has "Vote NO on Prop 8" signs in the windows at his Palo Alto home, and has even incorporated "No on 8" messages into the family’s Halloween yard decorations.

Former San Francisco 49ers’ Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young has two official "No on 8" signs in the windows of his house in Palo Alto. On Friday, there were also three Halloween-themed signs in Young’s yard that also urged people to reject the gay marriage ban.

Young’s wife, Barbara, has also donated approximately $50,000 to the "No on 8" campaign aimed at defeating Proposition 8. Steve Young, answering a doorbell ring at his home late Friday afternoon, declined to comment about the signs in his yard.

But in an e-mailed statement to the gay rights group Equality California, Barbara Young wrote: "We believe all families matter, and we do not believe in discrimination, therefore, our family will vote against Prop. 8."

Also worth noting: In addition to Steve Young’s iconic status as a Hall of Famer: he is the great-great-great-grandson of the patriarch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Brigham Young.
