Mormons pushing church on gay marriage

by Rachel Baker on October 12, 2014

This is an interesting turn of events. Apparently, there is a group of Mormons who believe the church should change its view on gay marriage – and they are working to make this change happen.

Some Mormons pushing church on gay marriage.

Court decisions this week paving the way for same-sex marriage to become legal in dozens of states, including Mormon strongholds like Utah, Idaho and Nevada, have emboldened a growing group of Latter-day Saints who are pushing the conservative church to become more accepting of gay members.

The church’s stance toward gays has softened considerably since it was one of the leading forces behind California’s ban on gay marriage in 2008, but high-ranking leaders have reiterated time and again the faith’s opposition to same-sex unions.

Some Mormons hope to change that, or at least work to make congregations more welcoming places for gays and lesbians.
