HRC to LDS Church: Change Your Religious Doctrines to Please Us!

 

It's kind of an extraordinary moment. Elder Boyd Packer gave a speech at a religious gathering, in which he reiterated the Mormon church’s long-held view that sex outside of marriage between a man and a woman is wrong.  "Impure" was one of the terms he used.  Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese, perhaps egged on by Judge Walker's "Finding of Fact #77" that religious beliefs hurt gays and lesbians, decided his political organization should attempt to change the LDS church's religious doctrines, delivering a petition signed by 150,000 folks telling Elder Packer to change his faith's tenets.

This is weird, strange new territory.  A signal of where the gay rights movement is headed?
