I’m not exactly sure what to make of the recent request of Affirmation (described here) for the LDS religion to stay out of the debate over same-sex marriage in California. It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that the LDS religion has actively worked to discourage same-sex marriage in multiple states over the last 20 years, including spending a lot of money. But, given the religion’s slow moving recognition of the rights of gays to, well, exist, maybe the LDS religion is now at the point where it can let people be and not try to force their moral views on others? I’m interested in what people think will happen. Here’s a poll to see what people think.
