I cannot begin to express how disturbed I am over the new Church policy regarding Same-Sex couples and their children. I cannot sleep I am so disturbed. This grates at the very core of my Mormon soul! How can we deny the blessings of the Gospel to innocent children? Why is living in a home with two moms or two dads such a source of conflict? Is it worse than living in a home with drug-addict parents? Would seeing that example cause "conflicts" between what is taught or demonstrated in the home and what is taught at Church? Why don't we deny baptism to those kids? Or kids from divorced families? Under this new policy, a child living with a dad who is an ax murderer can get baptized, but GOD FORBID if a child is living with gay parents! I am totally disgusted right now! Totally! This new policy is even worse than this one:
I feel like this is a backlash - a retrenchment of sorts - to the recent SCOTUS ruling. It is a continuation of the heinous polices of "annotating" membership records of gays and of the outright ostracizing of transgender folk. This does nothing but divide, alienate, and punish. Is that REALLY what Jesus would do??
