This post is mostly in reply to several of the comments people have posted arguing against Gay Marriage.
Just a quick thought for you. According to LDS doctrine, how did Satan come to be? Well when God proposed that the world be created Lucifer said that he would FORCE everyone to do the “right” thing so that they would return to live with God, and all the glory would be his. Think about that for a minute, he did not become Satan by trying to get people to be evil, that was a result of his being cast out. He became Satan by trying to MAKE people be “good.” According to LDS doctrine, Jesus became the Messiah by wanting people to be able to make their own choices.
Now how would you describe trying to outlaw this new civil rights movement with Gay Marriage? Would you call it forcing people? Or would you call it being Christ-like? Just some food-for-thought.
