Mormon Church Calls For Compassion Toward Gays

The Mormon church has launched a new campaign encouraging its members to be more compassionate toward the LGBT community. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints launched a website, mormonsandgays.com, which calls for Mormons of all stripes to “love one another.” CNN reported that the website appears to support the belief held by some gay-marriage activists that the LDS church is “toning down its opposition to same-sex marriage.” But AP said church leaders still insist “they aren’t changing the Mormon teaching that same-sex relationships are sinful.” Still, church leaders say they hope the new resource will foster a greater “understanding of homosexuality among Mormons and a more civil conversation about the issue.”
