Mormon church wants more compassion for gays

Mormon leaders made their most significant outreach yet to gays and lesbians, unveiling a new website Thursday that encourages church members to be more compassionate in discussions about homosexuality.

Church officials insist they haven't changed the Mormon teaching that marriage is only between a man and a woman and that same-sex relationships are sinful. However, the website states that Mormons should be loving and respectful toward gays and lesbians, while appealing to gay and lesbian Mormons to stay in the church.

"Reconciling same-sex attraction with a religious life can present an especially trying dilemma," church leaders wrote on the website. "Anyone who lives in both worlds can attest to its difficulty. But with faith, love and perspective, it can be done." ...

They know the bible and are well aware of what false teachers are along with what their fate will be. With this in mind, if they are charlatains, I can't imagine how they can continue doing what they do, in God's name, without any apparrent fear. They can't possibly believe in God, an afterlife, etc.
Yes, but if they are that deceived, then they are deceived about God's justice and righteousness. The ones you are talking about are con artists and they don't understand the consequences. They have turned our heavenly Father into a genie, or a kindly old man, or even worse some type of mystical force that operates like natural law. I know there are saved Charismatics; I was one of them for a short period of time, but I tend to look at that movement as the blind leading the blind.

What I find frightening, Frank, is that he said he felt called. Called by Satan masquerading as an angel of light, I guess. So many believe they are called for this or that but I wonder what percentage have really listened to the right voice.
I agree. The only way we know the right voice is to compare it to scripture. I always have thought that Satan can do much more damage as an angel of light rather than a wolf and that sort of makes sense and scripture confirms that. Like Satan in the garden didn't frighten Eve, but convinced Eve he was correct and God was simply withholding something from her, but look what damage he did.

Regardless of what the Mormon church says or does, they are still a cult in every sense of the word. So, in a sense, it is irrelevant what they say about moral issues. With that said, notice the following from the article.

"He left BYU and figured he would never return to the Mormon church. But in 2005, he felt called to begin going to worship services again at a ward in Minneapolis. Although he remains ex-communicated, he said many of the church members and the bishop have gradually accepted him even knowing he's openly gay and married to a man."

From the above, is it likely this man will be convicted of his sin and will drive him to the cross; of course not. This also frequently happens in churches that are more mainstream (although likely heretical); and the result will always be the same; nothing of a spiritual nature happens.
