I’ld like to call the world’s attention to two NPR stories that, in my view, demonstrate that religions will be penalized if same-sex marriage is legalized.
These questions are not fearmongering. They are based in actual events and questions like these are one of the reasons many religious people are concerned about efforts to legalize same-sex marriage.
This incident backs up same-sex marriage opponents’ claim that they will face religious discrimination should same-sex marriage be legalized.
Mormons, like any other group of people, has its racists. My main contention here is that the theology of Mormonism is not racist and that people who think that other are inferior because of the color of their skin need to repent.
This is just further evidence that anti-Mormon bigotry is increasing and that anti-Mormons are becoming more brazen.
Lds.org’s newsroom has an excellent article on how religious views are being removed from the public sphere. The article is quoted below in its entirety.
I know what I believe and I have a pretty good grasp of Mormon theology. Do not try to tell me that I don’t know my own religion.
