Apostle Russell M. Nelson, head of the religion's governing body and next in line for the Mormon presidency, said in a worldwide speech Sunday that Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints President Thomas S. Monson received instructions regarding same-sex couples directly from God.

Rusty looks like the kind of guy who would say “The voice in my head told me to”.

and of course Rusty was behind it. He is a very sad example of a human being.

Interesting that they backed out of the children aspect of this and did it quietly so they didn't have to explain why they were WRONG.

I've lived it. Now tell me again that I should save my gay husband? Well, I did. And he saved me, which is why I'm here on this board.

How long do we have to wait for Rusty to move on to receive his glory? ha ha ha ha

The morg is designed to discourage changes other than superficial ones given that teaching an old dog new tricks is so hard.

By the time a man gets to be prophet he is either in his dotage controlled by less declined men or like Rusty executing a very small wish list he's carried for decades in the hope of becoming prophet. The list of what he doesn't care about is long and probably includes homosexuality.

that all you have to do is ask Jesus or God and he will deliver. And I always think, "But he didn't for me." In the end, we found our way and we found our answers, but I'm so sick of church members talking about all you have to do is ask and I think of all the gays and those who love them, all the prayers that have been said to "save the gays." And THEY DON'T NEED TO BE SAVED from YOUR GOD and YOUR RELIGION.

If there is a God, he created them just as they are. And if anyone knows that (and I don't know if there is a God and I don't worry about it), I do.

As I just told my "husband" recently again about MofF and how it said to knock at that door until your hands are bloodied to fix yourself when you are gay. I knocked that damn door down.

Those old men lied to me and to all the gays I know. What they did is unforgivable. They all make me sick, but especially RUSTY. Or as EOD called him once, SISTER WENDY. I eagerly await is death.

There's money to be made in hatred.
Creating an evil "other"

You won't get a lot of people from this increasingly open-minded younger demographic; but those you do get, will pay ya

So G-d is too busy to reveal anything helpful to humans, like about climate change mitigation or easing suffering
But G-d has time to make sure a particular group of humans is discriminated against and hated?

It's because ghawd is from a small town and left school in the 5th grade. He's from a long line of proudly ignorant deities!

well religion kind of makes God or Gawd look bad. Pretty sure God did not care about my private parts at 12 years old. Pretty sure that was old men wanting to be perverts and adding God to their actions. Now seeing it from a more mature perspective I see it as old men using the God excuse to be perverts.

I'd just email them and thank them for their opinion on this matter and that I will certainly give it all the consideration it merits.

maybe thank them for their opinion on this very important matter, and that I really respect their expertise on such personal matters as well as in more mundane issues like real estate development, and that I will certainly give it all the consideration it merits.

Also please take me off your list! I'm really inundated with too much stuff these days.

Dear Little Russ---Always the last to know.

Dear Little Russ--the one you have to explain the joke to.

Dear Little Russ--the one the Mormon system failed the most. Trapped in himself.

I love the idea that God is homophobic. This means God created a creature God fears.

That's right.

I once went to a gay rights protest, carried a sign saying "God does not make mistakes." Surprisingly, some people thought that was an endorsement of the Christian bigots.

Haha. Sometimes you just can't win!

How were you to know the no mistakes thing is used by the Christian bigots to insinuate that we all chose to sin and weren't born that way.

Now . . . think of that in terms of severe life ending birth defects. I guess those babies just weren't valiant enough in the pre-existence,or, so very valiant that they got to go home early.

According to Mormonism babies can't have their temple work performed without taking a breath so for Mormonism I would guess that they didn't "get a body" so they weren't valiant enough.

There you go again, applying logic to Mormonism.

"Go ahead and hate your neighbor
Go ahead and cheat a friend
Do it in the name of heaven
You can justify it in the end."

Always loved that lyric from One "Tin Soldier".
