Mormons leaders, members struggle over gay marriage edict

by Michael D. Regan  |  published on November 16, 2015

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints this week revised its newly released policies for the children of same-sex couples the day before hundreds of its members resigned their affiliations as Mormons in protest.

An edict handed out to churches in late October said the children of gay couples would be banned from memberships until they were 18 years of age, and would be accepted into the church only if they renounced gay marriage and received approval from church leaders.

The proclamation also barred children of same-sex couples from being baptized, blessed, or confirmed, and made gay marriage grounds for excommunicating members.

    Oh Well, I would really feel bad if a gay kept me from going to church. Their faith wasn’t very strong to begin with. They will either come back which my bet is on that, or they will go their own way. End of story. Can not please everyone.

    Good news. Finally some conservative Christians are standing up. When will the Mormons leave the Boy Scouts of America who now have Gay leaders?

    If they believed in the one true God and His Word, they wouldn’t be struggling. He said what it is and that’s that!

    Just another example of left’s Alinsky tactics to bully their attitudes. I don’t recall negative MSM stories about LDS since they felt Romney had to be stopped (including the Oct. Story Set-up to this). Having gotten this far (forcing doctrine violations, as well as SCOTUS making new law), I’ll expect next to try to force Mormons to not mention God in their sermons. Are there any outside-Church agitators directing this ‘member resignation protest?’ Check the movements into UT from Baltimore and Ferguson.
