The Mormon Church announced a new campaign today, calling for the support of the LGBTQ community within their organization.
Their new website, mormonsandgays.org showcased an official statement from the church:
“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.”
They are, of course, still not ok with people “acting on” their homosexual feelings, but at least they are asserting that being LGBT is not a choice. (Yay! They’re caught up with the ever-progressive Catholics). No seriously, this is a big deal, and a nice step forward for Mormons.
Bet Romney wishes this happened a little bit earlier.
