Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) hate or not tolerate those who are sexually active outside of marriage, those who experience same gender attraction, or those who act on same gender attraction?
Misinformed people and organizations may lead you to believe so, but the exact opposite is true.
In this video, Elder David A. Bednar clearly teaches why the Law of Chastity is so important in God’s plan for our happiness and progression. This belief directly influence our stance on sexual practices and life styles. I think you’ll find it pleasantly simple.
Please share your impressions. We’d love to hear them in the comments below.
The means by which mortal life is created is divinely appointed. “The first commandment … God gave to Adam and Eve pertained to their potential for parenthood as husband and wife” (Ensign or Liahona, Nov. 2010, 129). The commandment to multiply and replenish the earth remains in force today. Thus, marriage between a man and a woman is the authorized channel through which premortal spirits enter mortality. Complete sexual abstinence before marriage and total fidelity within marriage protect the sanctity of this sacred channel.
