APRIL 2014 GENERAL CONFERENCE REMARKS ON LGBT ISSUES
Mormons Building Bridges is a grassroots organization that supports faithful Latter-day Saints in making their homes and congregations safe and welcoming for LGBT/SSA individuals in accordance with current policy and doctrine of the Church. We pursue our mission because of our religion and not in spite of it. Therefore, Mormons Building Bridges deliberately does not engage in discussions over the merits of either side of the same-sex marriage debate. MBB loves and supports LGBT and SSA people in whatever life path they choose. For some that means same-sex marriage. For others it means a mixed orientation marriage or celibacy. MBB focuses on the person and not on the merits of legal/rights debates. Those debates will settle themselves in the public arena, but in the long and short term, the need for love and support of individuals will remain. Hence, MBB’s approach takes the long view in reaching out in love and acceptance.
