LDS Apostle Joins Leaders Against Gay Marriage

kutv.com – LDS Apostle Joins Leaders Against Gay Marriage:

SALT LAKE CITY An apostle of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints stood with several other religious leaders at a news conference in Washington supporting a proposed constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.

Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles participated in a press conference with the Alliance for Marriage, and met with President Bush at the White House before giving a statement in support of amending the U.S. Constitution.

“Together we share a duty to preserve marriage and family as established by God,” Nelson said. “The time has now come when a constitutional amendment is needed in this country to protect our divine inheritance. Such action does not reduce our regard for individuals who choose to live by other standards. But it confirms our conviction that marriage is the foundry for social order, the fountain of virtue and the foundation for eternal exaltation.”

  1. Reduce the regard? People who aren’t even allowed to exist? “So-called” gays and lesbians. I guess you can’t get worse than nothing.
