Are Mormons Gay-Haters?by -
The LDS (Mormon) Church has been the target of ongoing accusations of bigotry and gay hating. These accusations are not true! Consider these statements made by Church leaders in the recent years:
How should members of the Church treat homosexuals?
- We are asked to be kinder with one another, more gentle and forgiving. We are asked to be slower to anger and more prompt to help. We are asked to extend the hand of friendship to be true disciples of Christ, to love one another with genuine compassion, for that is the way Christ loved us. (Same-Gender Attraction, Elder Dallin H. Oaks, quoting the First Presidency and referring to those with homosexual tendencies, 1996)
