LDS Church disallows children of gay parents from joining

There are other things this new decision has caused, but mostly, it's against gay parents and their children. There are times when I have asked myself if leaving was a good idea. Shit like this, well..it leaves no room for doubt. I made the right choice.

Way to be all inclusive!  I'm sure that won't do anything but enhance your reputation!

Monson really needs the Pope's PR guy.

"The children of gay parents can get their Melchizedek priesthood and get married in the temple, too. Who am I to judge?"

I'm sorely tempted to write slashfics starring early Mormon figures.

If you look at it logically, cannibalism has great potential to simultaneously solve our overpopulation and food shortage problems.

So that means children of same sex coupes can join their church? Good for those kids.

I think it means the exact opposite, actually.

Still good for those kids, if you ask me.

Sorry. Should have been "can't join". Damn autocorrect.

Hundreds of Mormons are probably going to leave the church.

I've got bad news for you: they likely won't join your parcel of Christianity. The chances of being successfully indoctrinated into another religion after you can reliably distinguish fantasy from reality is slim.

I applaud the LDS church for their efforts to increase the nonreligious population.

Are you sure?  You may not want some of these people.

I said slim, not none. Some people have trouble distinguishing fantasy from reality all their lives.

You can't always work with saints, you know. It's a marriage of convenience.
