Mormon church launches website about ‘same-sex attraction’ (Web site linked)
The Mormon church has created a website asking followers to have compassion for people with “same-sex attraction,” reported AZCentral.
The website features videos of church leaders, Mormons who “are attracted to people of the same sex,” and family members and friends of those individuals.
“Family members with same-sex attraction need our love and understanding,” it reads.
Videos of church leaders say that as long as those with “same sex attraction” don’t enter into relationships with members of the same sex, there are no barriers to church membership or the priesthood.
The website also claims the church will stop necessarily advising gay or lesbian members to marry those of the opposite sex.
The language on the website does not often use the terms gay or lesbian, although it occasionally does.
However, it does remains firm in its opposition to the morality of the issue at hand. “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,” it reads.
While the church’s position has not changed, the website says that “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.”

The old men in SLC are dying off. Unfortunately, since all the leadership operates by seniority, it will be some time before they really change. This is just an effort to fake us out.

The reason Prop. 8 is going to the Supreme Court is in large part thanks to them.

If you read the fine print they advocate compassion for those of you afflicted with the gay thing. They do expect the fag to take a vow of celibacy and tithe 10 percent of his earnings There was a time when the negro was not acceptable. Then they figured out they could tap the negro for profit and voila, a revelation from god arrived. Mormons are not charitable to anyone outside their cult. Pedophiles abound among them and they never face that, every one is silent while the men screw their daughters. That is incest of course, which they favor. This is called profiting from sheep while shearing them on a freezing night

They finally realized that hating gays is bad for PR. We have to fight back against this disingenuous attempt to seem modern.

Fuck them, fuck them all.
This is just more of the "Love the sinner, hate the sin" shit.
It's all about money.
That's all the COLDS is.

Disingenuous bullshit. This is a veiled attempt to circumvent their bigotry towards gays by influencing the general public with this propaganda style inclusion with addendum.

[quote]From a public relations perspective it would be easier for the Church to simply accept homosexual behavior. But given that we are a batshit crazy cult of wheat grinders and demagogue control freaks believing in personal planetary heavens, it is not possible for us to engage in something as superficially decent as accepting human equality and dignity. And, besides, faggots and dykes didn't vote for our Designated Messiah.
