    Seriously. Christianity didn't magically become out to "convert or kill" during the crusades and the inquisition, it was the people USING the religion to do that. People will go "That was hundreds of years ago" but that doesn't change the fact of the matter that the religion of Christianity then is the religion of Christianity of now, just administered by different people. So you can't blame the people on Christianitys parts but blame the religion on Islams part.

    Good to see this news. This should remind people to think twice before they try to label an entire religion as being bigoted based on its stance on one particular facet of an issue.
    the mormom church, and every other church, has every right to deny same sex marriage, without being called bigots.

    that's why all marriage outside a church should be deemed civil marriage, and gays should be able to avail themselves of that option.

    I take it you don't remember their involvement in fighting against the ERA? Or, their racist stance on people of color prior to 1976?

    One thing that is cool about the LDS church, though, they are VERY responsive to negative public opinion. They can be shifted, just like they were on the civil rights issue. All it takes is a large public backlash and new revelation comes down from on high.

    LDS missionaries dress in white shirts and ties. Two of them helped me move a sofa. I didn't convert, but we had a pleasant exchange and I support what they're doing as right for them.

    Nah, I used to get Jehovah's Witnesses at my door (but they'd usually come as couples with children dressed in normal clothes). I also got a couple of Mormons at least once (and they looked pretty much like the guys in the picture).

    I see SLC is catching up with the times, in which case I don't see why the Mormons would try to stop it. They are, however, opponents to gay marriage as evidenced by their large cross-state interference in Prop 8, and thus we cannot give them full credit. They are still against equal marriage opportunity and gay couples adopting children.

    I hate to sound mean but Jehovah's Witnesses sometimes give me the creeps.
