Seattle Mormon leaders to gays: Come back to church
October 15, 2014
Jana Riess writes about the initiative going on in the Seattle North Stake to welcome gay members back to Church. The article quotes Mitch Mayne saying, “That means LGBT individuals are welcome to come to church regardless of where they are in their personal lives — single and living under the confines of the policy as we understand it today, married to a partner of their same gender, or dating someone new every night. There is no Bishop’s interview to sit in the pews on Sunday. There is no test to take to come to Sacrament or any of our meetings or events. Everyone is welcome, just as they are.”
