Bully prophet

CHURCH POLICY: “A natural or adopted child of a parent living in a same-gender relationship, whether the couple is married or cohabiting, may be baptized and confirmed, ordained, or recommended for missionary service only as follows: A mission president or a stake president may request approval from the Office of the First Presidency to baptize and confirm, ordain, or recommend missionary service for a child of a parent who has lived or is living in a same-gender relationship when he is satisfied by personal interviews that both of the following requirements are met: 1. The child accepts and is committed to live the teachings and doctrine of the Church, and specifically disavows the practice of same-gender cohabitation and marriage. 2. The child is of legal age and does not live with a parent who has lived or currently lives in a same-gender cohabitation relationship or marriage.” –LDS Church Handbook 1, section 16.13. [source]

COMMENTARY: Just because grownups are doing it doesn’t mean it’s not bullying. Just because a prophet commanded it doesn’t make it right. Take a stand against all forms of bullying. Otherwise you are allowing your religion to make you into a worse person instead of a better person. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
