Mormons preach love for LGBT members, but no doctrinal shift

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Mormon leaders told gay and lesbian members Tuesday that attraction to people of the same sex is not a sin or a measure of their faithfulness and may never go away, but reminded them that having sex violates fundamental doctrinal beliefs that will not change.
The newly unveiled “Mormon and Gay” church website includes articles, teachings, videos and stories from church members who identify themselves as gay and lesbian. It is a remake of a site first created nearly four years ago that marked the religion’s most significant outreach to gays and lesbians.
The website is designed to encourage compassion and acceptance for LGBT people and strike a softer tone on an issue that has led to criticism of the conservative Utah-based The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recently.
The Mormon church is one of many conservative faith groups staunchly upholding theological opposition to same-sex relationships amid widespread social acceptance and the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision legalizing gay marriage, while attempting to foster an empathetic stance toward LGBT people.
“There is no change in the church’s position of what is morally right,” church leader Dallin H. Oaks said on the website. “But what is changing_and what needs to change_is helping church members respond sensitively and thoughtfully when they encounter same-sex attraction in their own families, among other church members, or elsewhere.”

The Mormon church and gays and their children 

A new rule enacted by the Mormon Church last week would classify church members in same-sex marriages as apostates, triggering disciplinary action and potential expulsion from the church. But another policy change has people up in arms. According to revisions of the Church of Latter-day Saints handbook, children of gay couples would be barred from membership until adulthood, and then only if they disavow the practice of same-sex marriage and cohabitation.

( Billy’s thoughts – It is one thing to love children who have gay parents and to care about gays but all churches should call for her members to reject sin. So the Mormon church is right here. It is also my prayer that this issue will be used to encourage Mormons who are in gay relationships and their children to come out of the Mormon church and seek  the true God of the Bible. All true believers need to pray that. )
