The Mormon Church Releases Statement Opposing The LGBT Equality Act

Mormon Leader Once Again Reaffirms LDS Church’s Opposition to Gay Marriage and Parenting

Mormon leader Dallin H. Oaks, a member of a top governing body called the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles,  reaffirmed the Mormon stance against same-sex marriage and reminded followers watching around the world that children should be raised in families led by a married man and woman no matter what becomes the norm in a “declining world”  during a church conference Saturday.

“We have witnessed a rapid and increasing public acceptance of cohabitation without marriage and same-sex marriage. The corresponding media advocacy, education, and even occupational requirements pose difficult challenges for Latter-day Saints,” Oaks said. “We must try to balance the competing demands of following the gospel law in our personal lives and teachings even as we seek to show love for all.”

Oaks also told members of the nearly 16-million member faith watching around the world that the religion’s 1995 document detailing the doctrine — “The Family: A Proclamation to the World” — isn’t’ a policy statement that will be changed.

A year ago, church leaders updated a website created in 2012 to let members know that that attraction to people of the same sex is not a sin or a measure of their faithfulness and may never go away. But the church reminded members that having gay sex violates fundamental doctrinal beliefs that will not change.

Mormon Church Rejects Utah Hate-Crime Bill That Protects LGBT’s and Mormons

Gay Mormon Hate Law

Just one  year after approving an LGBT nondiscrimination law (albeit a weak one.) the Mormon Church would rather let hate crimes go unprosecuted against its own flock than let gays, lesbians, bisexual, and transgender people get protection of hate based crimes under the law because Mormon leaders say the bill would upset the “balance” church leaders called for in 2015.

A spokesman for the LDS elders said in a statement. “Interests from both ends of the political spectrum are attempting to alter that balance. We believe that the careful balance achieved through being fair to all should be maintained.”

Utah’s limited hate-crime legislation currently contains no list of protected classes, which means that SB 107 would not only protect LGBT citizens but would also do more to protect religious expression in the state.

“We’re here [in Utah] because Mormons were lynched, Mormons were persecuted, Mormons were driven out of states,” Said the bill’s author Republican state senator Rep. Stephen Urquhart, who is Mormon. “That’s worthy of protection.”

The bill easily cleared committee two weeks ago, but Urquhart said the church has “effectively snuffed out” discussion with its public comments about “balance.”

Meanwhile Gov. Gary Herbert, a practicing Mormon, was cautious in his approach to the hate-crimes bill, telling the press, “If I kill you, you’re just as dead whether I hated you or I love you and killed you. I don’t understand how that works. Certainly, I think it’s worth a discussion, but we keep creating categories.”

The Mormon Church’s opposition to SB 107, and its recent controversial policy change prohibiting any child who primarily resides with same-sex parents from being baptized until they are 18 and only then if that child “specifically disavows the practice of same-gender cohabitation and marriage. “ Is enough for Senator Urquhart to question his faith.

“When I was a child in a dark situation, the Mormon Church shined a light in my life,” Urquhart said at his press conference last Thursday. “But since then, that light has flickered.”

Mormon Church Won't Oppose Utah's Gay Conversion Therapy Torture Ban

Today In Irony: Mormon Church Bitchslaps Kim Davis: “We Shouldn’t Be Having Culture Wars Over Same-Sex Marriage”

Mormon Church Kills LGBT bill

Anti-gay Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis is having a very bad week.  First the rabidly crazy Westboro Baptist Church picketed her fat ass earlier this week in Kentucky for being a “fake Christian and adulterer” and breaking the law, And now the squeaky clean anti-gay Mormon Church has publicly denounced her.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports:

Kim Davis, a county clerk in Kentucky, cannot use her Christian faith as a justification for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gays, a high-ranking Mormon authority said Tuesday. Public officials “are not free to apply personal convictions — religious or other — in place of the defined responsibilities of their public offices,” LDS apostle Dallin H. Oaks said in a speech in Sacramento, Calif. “A county clerk’s recent invoking of religious reasons to justify refusal by her office and staff to issue marriage licenses to same-gender couples violates this principle.”

“First, parties with different views on the relationship between church and state should advocate and act with civility,” Oaks said. “We all lose when an atmosphere of anger or hostility or contention prevails. We all lose when we cannot debate public policies without resorting to boycotts, firings and intimidation of our adversaries.” Next, he said, compromise should be the goal. “On the big issues that divide adversaries on these issues, both sides should seek a balance, not a total victory,” Oaks advised. “For example, religionists should not seek a veto over all nondiscrimination laws that offend their religion, and the proponents of nondiscrimination should not seek a veto over all assertions of religious freedom.

A message from the Morom Church who brough us Prop 8 and has lost over a million followers due to its past stand on lesbians and gays.

The Mormon Church Reaffirms Its Opposition To Gay Marriage: People Are Having Fewer Kids

SIN

Oh those wacky Mormons.

Once again The Mormon Church has officially reaffirmed its opposition to same-sex marriage.  And why?   Because people are having fewer children because gay marriage makes straight people live together in sin.  SIN, I tells ya!. 

On the second and final day of the LDS Church’s 183rd Semiannual General Conference, apostle Dallin H. Oaks bemoaned America’s dropping birthrates, later marriages and rising incidence of cohabitation as evidence of “political and social pressures for legal and policy changes to establish behaviors contrary to God’s decrees about sexual morality and the eternal nature and purposes of marriage and child-bearing.” An LDS eternal perspective does not allow Mormons “to condone such behaviors or to find justification in the laws that permit them,” said the apostle, a former Utah Supreme Court justice. “And, unlike other organizations that can change their policies and even their doctrines, our policies are determined by the truths God has declared to be unchangeable.”

Sad so many people allow themselves to be brainwashed by a magic underwear cult.

Mitt Romney States In Speech: Children Are Better Off With Straight Parents

In a speech made made a speech via satellite at the Faith and Freedom Coalition Saturday Mitt Romney once again stated that children are better off growing up with straightl parents.

Romney said:

“We need to strengthen the commitment that exists in this country to family. I hope to be able to talk to young people and tell them how important it is to get married before they have children because the opportunity for a mom and a dad to help guide the life of a child gives them such an enormous advantage in their lives going forward,”

Romney spokesman Ryan Williams, said it is the candidate’s long held belief children are better off with straight parents.

“This is what he’s been saying forever,” Mr. Williams said. “He’s always said that the ideal setting to raise a child is with the mom and the dad.”

Romney believes that states should be the one to decide if gay couples have the right to adopt and , of course opposes same sex marriage and civil unions.
