The LDS (Mormon) Church officially supports gay rights and condemns polygamy; contrary to the media-fed stereotype which has it the other way around. Leftists are quick to point to one fringe preacher in the middle of nowhere who said something anti-Gay and say “See, that’s how all Christians feel. That one preacher’s statement condemns all Christians.” Mainly because it fits in with their own bigoted stereotypes, and helps promote their precious sense of victimhood.
But they will never accept that this Church Leader’s statements and experience more broadly represent Christianity than one isolated nutjob.
A high-ranking member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said he would like to see additional legal steps taken to protect religious freedom, and stamp out discrimination against gays — whose history with the church has been complex one.
Elder D. Todd Christofferson, of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles, spoke publicly on the matter last week — noting that his own family is a great example of how a harmony can be struck between members of his faith and the gay community.
“The model is the same,” Elder Christofferson said. “The Savior points the way.”
Number of people who have been defenestrated by Mormons for being gay: 0
BTW: The gay left has already smacked away the olive branch offered by the LDS Church, because it’s all-or-nothing with those people, and they would rather hate Christians than learn to get along with them.
