Church Issues Response to Affirmation - LDS Newsroom
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued the following statement today in response to a press conference organized by Affirmation:
"The issues surrounding same gender attraction deserve careful attention not public posturing. It appears from Affirmation’s actions today that it has opted for a public rather than a private exchange.”
It seems as though the group - Affirmation, is trying to put public pressure on the Church, by making them seem the bad guys in this issue. Nothing could be further from the truth. This statement is meant to set the record straight - as to "who" is dodging who in this situation.
Unfortunately, these are members of the LDS Church, who seem to feel that if enough pressure from the public is directed toward the Church - the Church will change it's policies.
This is a group that generally believe, that changes in Mormon policy - most always come because of "peer" pressure and not revelation. To think that by putting pressure on the Church in such a manner -- could ever change the Eternal Plan of God, regarding the Family!
I am very happy to see The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints come out openly and Stand For Something!
