Get my chariot ready, the rapture is near. The Mormon Church has asked it’s members to be more compassionate to gay and lesbian persons.
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. -official statement on LDS website.
To be clear, the LDS still considers homosexuality to be a sin, but we must celebrate every step humankind makes toward compassion. This is why we must never give up on anyone. While this statement is still arrogant and inadequate, it demonstrates a truth. Whatever religious approach one begins with, will become love if we allow it to broaden and deepen until it breaks the chains of its own sectarian superstitious beginnings.
