Mormons now supporting Homosexuality?

Imagine my surprise when I received an email update from OneNewsNow stating that the Mormon Church now supports Gay rights and including a poll regarding the reasons why the Mormon Church would take this new stance. Sadly, the poll only offered choices which were offensive and very negative about the Mormon Church. Just to clarify: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly known as the Mormon Church) HAS NOT changed their stance on the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman. They ARE NOT pandering to the LGBT community in an effort to save face and reverse reprisals because of Prop. 8.
Please read this statement from the Church and see for yourself. As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I am in full agreement with it.

Absolutely 100% correct. This probably has a lot of people confused... and GOOD!! It will force them to come to an understanding of just exactly what Prop 8 was all about, and which rights are being discussed now and why we say yes to them. We, as Mormons, want all people to enjoy all of the same rights as us (acknowledging that changing the definition of marriage is not a right, but infringes upon our rights).
