Mormon Church Calls For Compassion Toward Gays, Says Homosexuality Is Not A Choice
An official statement posted on the new website reads:
The experience of same-sex attraction is a complex reality for many people. The attraction itself is not a sin, but acting on it is. Even though individuals do not choose to have such attractions, they do choose how to respond to them. With love and understanding, the Church reaches out to all God’s children, including our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters.
Excuse me, Mormon Church, but telling someone to remain celibate throughout his/her life is not compassionate. Stick your new stance up your ass.
Um....ok... bit too late for our friends in California would you care to out your money where your mouth - was- at help pay to get some pro-marriage laws put in place?
Oh shut up Mormons.
Hmmm....$$$ I wonder ($$$) what could be ($$$) their motivation for thi$$?
Yeah, that's why you spent $100 tax free millions to make California Gays legal second class citizens.
If I had won, the church wouldn't be pulling this shit.
Severely conservative Mitt
The Mormons must have had lower-than-expected conversion quotes this year, so they decided to reach out to us little gays. Pity!
I find this bullshit more offensive than if they just believed I chose it and am going to hell - because now they feel sorry for me, still call it a sin, and believe that I should spend my life being celibate? FUCK YOU, WEIRDOS.
same as catholic church.
Both should lose tax exempt status due to their active politicking.
And what sort of gay is going to accept this "love the sinner, hate the sin" shit?
Simple "BOYCOTT MARRIOTT"!
This whole thing is just too bizarre for words. There's a reason for everything. Is the blonde red-headed stepchild of Mitt's a 'mo? Is Mitt running again?
Even the quote that their website put up still reeks of homophobia.

What new stance are they exactly trying to put out? They're still saying that acting out on our impulses is a "sin".
This to me is too similar to when Chick-Fil-A tried to walk back their bigotry only to reel it back in when they were further pressed.
Don't fall for it.
The Mormoms are hateful, despicable people. This statement does nothing to make them less hateful and despicable.
What? We're not supposed to love someone, have a partner or simply act on a (god-given) human characteristic since they're saying homosexuality is not a choice?
Well, fuck the Mormoms and their so-called, new compassionate bullshit.
They're babbling because they know that Mittens' Magic Underwear was a major reason no one like that clown. that and all Mormons only like themselves.
