So I think this needs to be said.

Mormons do not teach doctrine about hating gay people. If there is any hate, it is from individual people with biases.

The LDS church teaches doctrine that we should be respectful and loving to all people.

Another thing which…

This is so common, the OP is projecting how they feel about the subject on the LDS church, while the church actions are the opposite.

I think the op has a higher moral standard then the church and wishes to apply that, in the hopes of making it seem better then it is.

It’s all right there.  It isn’t about how I feel, it’s all on that website.  People have a fundamental misunderstanding of the church due to various reasons, and I think it’s time people became more informed.

Thank you for the link. I am afraid it is not “all” there in the link. While the document abounds with bias, It must really be confusing to see the different then actions of the LDS church. http://www.motherjones.com/documents/811352-lds-church-gay-marriage-lobbying-reports  

You gave a link for a lobbying report, and I think I see the point.  The church doesn’t support gay marriage, I never said they did, I said they supported gay rights when it came to medical care, employment, etc.  Gay marriage would impact how the church operates in a number of ways so the leadership decided to lobby for traditional marriage.  And while I do not advocate the church (or any church in general) getting involved in politics, the leadership of the church believes it needed to advocate for traditional marriage and so they did.

So I think this needs to be said.

Mormons do not teach doctrine about hating gay people.  If there is any hate, it is from individual people with biases.

The LDS church teaches doctrine that we should be respectful and loving to all people.

Another thing which most people don’t know is that the LDS church has actually advocated for gay rights, such as hospitalization, medical care, housing, employment, and probate rights.  They support equal rights so long as they don’t infringe on “integrity of the traditional family or the constitutional rights of churches.”

The other sister was just going on about driving at night.

Pisses me off that my parents are letting her drive when she hasn’t done jack squat to deserve it.

Heck, I worked my butt off before I got my driver’s license.  They’re rationalizing it because it’s just a permit and she won’t be able to get her license until later.

That being said, it’ll probably be fairly soon after I leave she’ll be able to get her license.  All the factors are pointing favorably, my mom getting a job and all that.

Sucks that life is often times tougher for the first child.

My sister is going to start 8th grade this year and she has no common sense whatsoever.  It’s just one thing after another after another.
