Thanks to David Sundwall over at A Soft Answer for this info. I'll just send you there; he gives a nice summary and includes a response from Elder Ballard.
(And if you haven't seen this at the Newsroom, it's worth a read, too. It's a compilation of supportive statements and articles. It's heartwarming to see what the Church calls "measured voices" providing "reason [and] support amidst [the] Proposition 8 reaction.")
