The Mormon Church has a new website geared toward LGBT Mormons. Their goal is to keep gay Mormons in the church.
The site is called MormonsAndGays.org, and as a reminder, it let us know that being gay isn't a sin, but acting on it is.
The Advocate reports:
It offers a series of videos by LGBT Mormons, their family members, and church leaders and encourages recognition of everyone’s common humanity.Many LGBT activists support this... I can't co-sign on this yet.
“When people have those [same-sex] desires and attractions our attitude is, ‘stay with us,’” Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the church’s Quorum of the Twelve Apostles says in a video on the site. “I think that’s what God is saying: stay with me. And I think that’s what we want to say in the church: Stay with us, and let’s work together in friendship and commonality and brotherhood and sisterhood.”
