The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has instructed local church leaders that same-sex couples are apostates and that children living with them can’t take part in church activities until they’re adults and leave home, the church told NBC News on Thursday night.
And, really, what can anyone say that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints did not just say for itself?
This is worth reminding: Never alienate the next generation.
No, really. Even if basic decency is too much to ask of Church leaders, one would expect them to at least be smart enough to not do to the future of their congregation what they just did.
