The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is repealing rules unveiled in 2015 that banned baptisms for children of gay parents and made gay marriage a sin worthy of expulsion:
The surprise announcement Thursday by the faith widely known as the Mormon church reverses rules that triggered widespread condemnations from LGBTQ members and their allies.
The church in a statement says it isn’t changing its doctrinal opposition to gay marriage and still considers same-sex relationships to be a “serious transgression.”
But people in same-sex relationships will no longer be considered “apostates” who must be kicked out of the religion.
The change also marks the biggest move yet by church President Russell M. Nelson, who has made a flurry of changes since taking over the faith in January 2018.
There are many Christians who do not believe that Mormonism is truly Christian, and might be tempted to use this approval of gay marriage and adoption as proof that Mormonism is corrupt, but then again, it’s really no different from the other major denominations today, who are doing everything they can to aid and abet the radical liberal agenda promoted by the Christian-hating media.
Well, it turns out that children raised by gay parents are more likely to turn out being gay themselves, so if the Mormons want to make sure that adult gays stay in the faith, they shouldn’t be so “judgmental” about these minor “lifestyle” choices. Of course, if you baptize a child of two gay parents, you must implicitly condone the “fruits” of gay marriage, such as adopted children. Regardless of what doctrine toward gays that the Mormons claim on paper, their actions now come firmly down on the side of the anti-Christs.
The Mormon church is a phony Christian, ‘judeo-christian’ fraud. As are all man made ‘christian’ religions that deny Christ through their embrace of judiasm’s corrupting influences… Followers of Christ share empirical knowledge and wisdom of Christ’s teachings, not false doctrines of men.
“There are many Christians who do not believe that Mormonism is truly Christian…”
Yes, and those Christians would be absolutely right.
There is nothing Christian about Mormonism at all. The best one could say about it formerly was that it produced conservative, clean living people but it looks like that has gone by the board too.
The GJU would have you believe that the anti-homosexual position of the Word of God is only a matter of ‘situational ethics’ and that to view homosexuality as anything other than just another ‘life choice’, means you are a HOMOPHOBE, and that must mean you are evil. I personally hate faggotry and everything that it represents, but I am not ‘homophobic’, as my hatred of that immoral choice has NOTHING to do with an ‘irrational fear’. Not only is it completely unnatural and a disgusting site to behold, but it’s only endgame is the complete destruction of humankind. It doesn’t take a genius to see it, but you have to quit tripping over your obnoxiously irrational bleeding heart and stop being lead around by those who hate you.
I suppose I don’t literally “fear” homosexuals the same way I fear Great White sharks, although fags are far more dangerous to the average White Christian than sharks are. Far more people have died because of the homosexual lifestyle and all of its sickness and degeneracy than were ever killed by sharks….
Exactly. I’m just pointing out that, according to jewish psychobabble, a ‘phobia’ is an ‘irrational fear’. There is nothing irrational about the ‘fear’ Christians have of the deviance and destruction resultant from homosexual, and therefor anti-Christian, behavior.
