LGBT issues: Now that the Mormon church has shown its true colors, why give it your alms?

And then there is the Mormon Church . . .

It seems that the cult-like organization has reaffirmed its disapproval of same-sex relationships in their handbook designed “to provide clarity to lay leaders who run congregations,” according to an Associated Press report.

“Being in a same-sex marriage warrants ousting from the religion and … children of gay parents must wait until they’re 18 and disavow homosexual relationships to be baptized,” the report says.

Apparently, a lot of people are upset about it. “The revisions triggered a wave of anger, confusion and sadness for a growing faction of LGBT-supportive Mormons who were buoyed in recent years by church leaders’ calls for more love and understanding for LGBT members,” the Associated Press report says.

Well, the church has now showed its true colors, and you would think LGBT people who can’t live with that perceived form of discrimination would simply leave the organization, and go to a church that accepts everyone, yes?

If worshipping unsubstantiated supernatural entities is your thing, there are plenty of good, loving churches who welcome same-couples with open arms. And let’s face it: going to church is not only about worship and dropping alms in the collection plate or giving it one-tenth of your earnings. It’s about unconditional brotherly and sisterly love. If a church is willing to take your alms but not willing to extend unconditional love to you, see it as a clue that they are not worthy of your attention, anyway, and aim for something higher.

Clearly, the Mormon church is not worthy of LGBT people.

For those who are fed up with organized, exclusionary religions in general but are still spiritual (as I am), I suggest you look into Theosophy — which has been part of my life for decades.

  1. Mormons, another religion, probably Ignorantly following the Pope and his Ranting about US. Catholics, of which all Christian’s are derivatives thereof, pay heed to what they preach. {Don’t want to be left out] Unfortunately the Catholics are running with false information by a [Catholic Zealot] Psychologist, Paul McHugh formally of Johns Hopkins Hospital. He still preaches his false, [Documented Trans Hater a fact] never proved theories from the 1970’s. [He is proved out of date and rebuked by his peers read his WSJ Rant this year]
    Didn’t work then and definitely not now. We really need to get the present information of what we were born with out to society and smart people , not wanting to look stupid, may start to understand our path in this life.

  2. This is nothing new. Luke 14:26: “”If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters–yes, even their own life–such a person cannot be my disciple.”

    Christianity (and I suppose it’s weird mutation Mormonism) have always been anti-family.
