Mormon Church to baptize children of LGBT parents

By host - Lynne.Coleman
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said on Thursday that it would allow children of same-sex couples to be baptized, a remarkable reversal of church policy from one of the religious groups that had long sought to be a bulwark against gay rights.

The decision rolled back a 2015 rule that had ripped congregations apart by declaring that church members in same-sex marriages were apostates and subject to excommunication, and that children of same-sex couples were banned from rituals like baptisms and baby-naming ceremonies.https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/04/us/lds-church-lgbt.html

I think it should not be an issue that Mormon Church is allowing the children of LGBT parents to be baptized. These children have nothing to do with their parents being gays.

God changes his mind an awful lot in Mormonism. First polygamy, then black people being in the priesthood, now kids of gays. Almost like the church changes its stances based on membership numbers.

I was raised Mormon *cough* excuse me, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Never met a saint among them. God does NOT inform this church. It is greed and power only.

Meanwhile almost no Islamic country in the world give LGBT people basic rights. (1.5 Billion people). Most of them offer death penalty/jail time/lashing.

What is the harm in baptizing the children? The child has nothing to do with the lifestyle of his/her parents. Having an issue with the parents is one thing. But the child is innocent. What am I missing that is causing people to be so upset about this?

There’s truth to a lot of religions but they’re all run by imperfect humans. We could definitely recognize that more.

The Mormons are, if nothing, good at business. This policy is motivated by membership and money. Their bean counters saw declines in both over anti LGBTQ stances... This is a business move, not an ecumenical one.

Well their whole religion is a sham, so every decision they make is a business decision.
