This came across in today's news
the thing about it that struck me is that their "supportive" site http://www.mormonsandgays.org/....uses the word "gay" at all. But of course it still preserves their definition of marriage (as between a man and a woman).
Well, some progress even if it's just a lip-service gesture...
An excerpt from their web page:
"...The Church’s approach to this issue stands apart from society in many ways. And that’s alright. Reasonable people can and do differ. From a public relations perspective it would be easier for the Church to simply accept homosexual behavior. That we cannot
do, for God’s law is not ours to change. There is no change in the Church’s position of what is morally right. But what is changing — and what needs to change — is to help Church members respond sensitively and thoughtfully when they encounter same-sex attraction in their own families, among other Church members, or elsewhere."
Yeah pawn it off to "God's law".....COWARDS.
