Mormon Church reaches out to Gays


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.

“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.”
Many LGBT activists support this... I can't co-sign on this yet.

I'm with you. It's like they're saying "Stay with us. Yes, we may be demanding you stay celibate for your whole life because expressing your sexuality is an evil act, but stay with us. We MAY accept the whole you. Someday."

Chile please.
