Hate is a strong word....
Hate is a strong word and there is a lot of it in our country. I recently visited the church history site where so many members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints endured much persecution. Reading a post yesterday from my niece Jackie I had to post these. The persecution is not over. Recently Proposition 8 passed in California. Members of the church, along with the rest of California residents voted. And it passed. Mormons do not make up the majority of California, yet the majority of the state passed Proposition 8.
Our church does not hate people who choose to have a different lifestyle than us. We love all people. All we did was stand up for what we believe. And we believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. While those who disagree with our church's position on Proposition 8 have every right to express how they feel....this is unnecessary, and it makes me cry.
Can't we all just get along?
Thanks Jackie for the post.
