6 comments on “Marriage Equality Quotes from LDS General Conference. Almost.

  1. The same principles do not apply the gay or lesbian couples. According to The Family: A Proclamation to the World, which is LDS doctrine, “WE, THE FIRST PRESIDENCY and the Council of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, solemnly proclaim that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children.” The key part of this is MAN AND WOMAN. This is the only type of marriage that is approved by God for any of us here. I do not deny that many people have homosexual feelings or inclinations, and I do not love any person less if they have them. But the law of God is eternal and unchanging. I have a cousin who is lesbian and several good friends who are gay, and I love and treat them the same way I would anyone else. Just to make it clear, changing these pictures to try to represent something that these Apostles and Prophets are teaching is not right. the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints does not condone marriage between two people of the same sex, and these principles regarding marriage do not apply the way you are trying to make them seem. I appreciate you trying to share your views on this with people around you, but please do not try to change what others are saying and teaching. If you look further into LDS teachings it will be obvious to you or anyone else tahhhat these principles do not apply to homosexual couples.
    I encourage you to read The Family: A Proclamation to the World. This document clearly outlines the beliefs of The LDS church regarding marriage and the family.
    I also hope I do not offend anyone by writing this. Everyone is entitled to share their standpoint, and I encourage anyone reading this to ponder for themselves what is true and what is not and to share their views.
    If anyone has any questions regarding the views of the LDS church, you can schedule a meeting with some representatives of this church here, http://www.mormon.org/missionaries, and they would be more than happy to meet with you.

    • Thanks for leaving your comment, Connor. I think what you described are principles for LDS couples. The quotes above feel more universal to me, eg, commitment, love, etc. Can you comment on how the more universal principles do not apply to gay and lesbian couples?

  2. Yeah, I don’t hate people that are gay, I just am sorry for what they believe. I believe that marriage exists between Man and Woman. It was Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. If you struggle with homosexuality, the LDS church can help you change. But if you intentionally persist in these carnal lusts in the world, I promise you nothing but anguish and grief will await you. Only a man and a woman can have a child.
