Mormon Church Bars Same-Sex Couples and Their Children


From The New York Times | Nov 6th, 2015

“Children of same-sex couples will not be able to join the Mormon Church until they turn 18 — and only if they move out of their parents’ homes, disavow all same-sex relationships and receive approval from the church’s top leadership as part of a new policy adopted by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints…”

There you have it – the children of same-sex couples are no longer worthy of baptism. But, why is the LDS Church punishing the children of same-sex couples? Why are they pitting them against their parents by forcing them to disown their parents before they can join the church?
