LGBTQ issues

The church has many controversial issues regarding the LGBTQ community. The mormon church has officially fought against gay marriage with Prop 8 in California. The church has issued policies rejecting baptising children of same-sex marriages and defining same-sex marriage as apostate.The church distinguishes between same-sex attraction and behavior. As stated on its website, "The experience of same-sex attraction is a complex reality for many people. The attraction itself is not a sin, but acting on it is." The LDS Church previously taught that same-sex attraction is a curable condition, but now states that "individuals do not choose to have such attractions" and that therapy focusing on "a change in sexual orientation" is "unethical."
