The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced on Thursday that it was reversing its controversial policy that classified people in same-sex marriages as "apostates. The change was attributed to President Dallin Oaks, and the church said it was intended to "help affected families" and "to reduce the hate and contention so common today.

LDS Church Rolls Back Policy That Restricted Baptizing Children Of Gay Parents : NPR

Top leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have reversed a policy that prevented minor children of same-sex married couples from joining the church and participating in its sacred rituals since Many conservative churches oppose same-sex relationships and have done so with increased intensity since the second half of the 20th century. However, as a scholar of gender and sexuality in Mormonism, I argue that the decision to bar children of same-sex parents from the church was tied to the conservative fight against same-sex marriage that was finding an increasing acceptance at the time in courts and elsewhere. Mormon theology is based on a divine heterosexual archetype that sets the pattern for all intimate human relationships. Latter-day Saints hold an ideal that heaven is a domestic paradise where families will live together in eternal harmony.

Nelson said love also motivated the original policy as he and other leaders attempted to prevent friction between the beliefs of gay parents and their children. Nelson became president last year but was a member of a top governing body called the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles when the policy took effect. Whenever the sons and daughters of God weep, for whatever reasons, we weep.
In a stunning move, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced Thursday it was reversing its controversial policy that defined same-sex marriage as a grave sin against the church worthy of excommunication and banned LGBT parents from baptizing their children. Prior to the reversal, children of LGBT parents could not be baptized until they turned 18 years old. Now, they can take part in the ritual as long as their parents approve and understand that their children will learn and follow the church's teachings. While we still consider such a marriage to be a serious transgression, it will not be treated as apostasy for purposes of Church discipline," leaders wrote. He said such efforts to show more understanding, compassion and love should increase respect and understanding among all people of goodwill.
