Mormon Church repeals ban on baptisms for children of gay parents
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is repealing rules unveiled in 2015 that banned baptisms for children of gay parents and made gay marriage a sin worthy of expulsion.
The surprise announcement by the faith widely known as the Mormon church reverses rules that triggered widespread condemnations from LGBTQ members and their allies and marked a jarring shift from the religion's push to carve out a more compassionate stance on LGBTQ issues.
The rules banned baptisms for children living with gay parents until they turn 18, disavowed same-sex relationships and received approval from global church leaders...
60% of all â€ś baptized converts to Mormonism â€ś, leaves the church. So perhaps this is a measure of addressing the slump. There are genetic Mormons , that can trace their to the hand cart exodus and then thereâ€™s the converts who answer the door and stupidly answer and Bob your head and so on and so forth. Largest group converted? People who identify as Southern Baptist. Thatâ€™s what happens when you say a prayer and get dunked and then when things settle down move on to the next emotional high that you crave.
And this comes from a 'church' that would not allow blacks in their leadership, and only recently said that blacks could go to heaven (whatever that means in their religion). When your roots are from Joseph Smith, originally from upstate New York and whose family spent their days searching for the Lost Cities of Gold and buried gold in that area, you know anything is possible. Like what the famous Russian author, Dostoevsky, said, 'When you don't believe in God, anything(crazy, crackpot ideas)is possible'
Worldly 'religions' are allowed to do worldly things since they are reprobate!!
Jude :7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. 8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. 10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves."
Psalm 74:10 O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? shall the enemy blaspheme thy name for ever? 11 Why withdrawest thou thy hand, even thy right hand? pluck it out of thy bosom."
"The faith said in a statement that it is not changing its doctrinal opposition to gay marriage and still considers same-sex relationships to be a "serious transgression....
But people in same-sex relationships will no longer be considered "apostates" who must be kicked out of the religion, the statement said."
So, does the 2nd paragraph, matched up with the 1st, make sense to anyone? Amazing how the LGBTQ community has such a stranglehold on this nation, and all in what, like four short years? OBama gives the sodomites the green light to marry, and then right before his reign of teror ends, he goes on a worldwide, let the sodomites love whomever they will, and leave them be, tour. Just look at them now, and the power they wield...the power to make or break any individual, and any established business who simply disagrees with the things they do.
