    Mormon Leaders Warn Children of Gay Parents Being Raised in 'Social Experiment'


    http://www.towleroad.com/2012/10/oaks.html

    "Mormon leaders at the 182nd Semiannual General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints reiterated the church's opposition to same-sex marriage. LDS Apostle Dallin Oaks said the children raised by parents in such a union are disadvantaged by being raised in a "social experiment", On Top reports.

    Oaks also reaffirmed the church's belief that gay is abnormal and gay sex is a sin, but he called for an end to bullying:

    “Young people struggling with any exceptional condition including same-gender attraction are particularly vulnerable and need loving understanding, not bullying or ostracism,” Oaks said.

    Oaks also called for an end to abortion and divorce."

    Time for modern thinking; and anyone who emotionally / mentally abuses young people via any medium (ie: including religion and also amongst other things) should be found guilty of an offence regardless of their beliefs / hobbies / interests or motivations within extremist groups

    Children raised by Mormon parents are the most sexually deviant when they reach adulthood.

    Not saying that's a bad thing, though. icon_wink.gif

    It's important to remember that Mitt Romney is a bishop in the Mormon church... plus he has given millions of dollars to fund the Mormons' campaigns against civil rights for gay Americans -- a so-called religion that preaches that gays are "abnormal" and "sinful." And now the Mormons are apparently extending their hate campaign against children of gay families.
    Romney has also personally written checks for thousands of dollars to hate groups that exist solely to persecute gays and fight against equality.
    Republicans must be so proud of their candidate. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Should we be endorsing this kind of dangerous bigotry by elevating him to the most powerful position in the world?
