The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has told all local church leaders that same-sex couples are apostates and that children living with them are barred from taking part in church activities, like blessings and baptisms, until they are adults and leave their parent home.
A spokesman for the church told reporters that they have long been on record as opposing same-sex marriages. While it respects the law of the land, and acknowledges the right of others to think and act differently, it does not perform or accept same-sex marriage within its membership.
The new policy reads that once a natural or adopted child living in a same-sex household reaches the age of eighteen, they may disavow the practice of same-sex marriage and stop living within the household. If that child turned adult follows the rules, they may request approval to be baptized, confirmed, ordained to the church priesthood and recommended for missionary service with the permission of an elder.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, according to their new policy, baptizes the children of murders and rapists although they say that a disciplinary council may be necessary but if you come from a same-sex household they write you are an apostate.
