A collection of RadioWest conversations about LDS history, faith, and culture.

Mormons and Gays

Last week, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints launched a websitethat explores its position on "same-sex attraction." Some in the LGBT community see it as a baby step in the right direction: it calls for love and compassion, it asks Mormon families to support their LGBT sons and daughters and it invites gays and lesbians to remain in the church as long as they're not "yielding" to their sexuality. Monday, we invite you to react to the website and share what you think it means for Mormons and the LGBT community.
