Mormon Leader Neil L. Anderson Outlines Gay Marriage Opposition

lds.org

SALT LAKE CITY (AP/KTVB) – A Mormon leader is reiterating the church’s opposition to gay marriage.

Neil L. Andersen of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ Quorum of the Twelve said Saturday during the church’s biannual general conference that changing definitions of marriage by governments doesn’t change the Lord’s guidance.

Andersen said God defined marriage as between a man and woman and designed it not just for the personal satisfaction of adults, but to create the ideal setting for children to be nurtured.

The church’s message on homosexuality has softened in recent years, but this marks the second consecutive conference in which leaders have talked about their opposition to gay marriage.

Utah’s same-sex marriage ban was overturned by a federal judge in December. The state has an appeal pending before a federal appeals court.
