Above is a picture of Recently Elected Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski, who just married fiancee Betty Iverson in Utah. Salt Lake City. Since Salt Lake City is the headquarters for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, one can only wonder how this lady got elected mayor.
In its General Conference, the Church talks about the evils of homosexual relations. In fact, they published a Proclamation on what God considers to be an acceptable family relationship. To Quote:
“WE, THE FIRST PRESIDENCY and the Council of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, solemnly proclaim that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children.
ALL HUMAN BEINGS—male and female—are created in the image of God. Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny. Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose….
THE FAMILY is ordained of God. Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity.
….we warn that the disintegration of the family will bring upon individuals, communities, and nations the calamities foretold by ancient and modern prophets.
WE CALL UPON responsible citizens and officers of government everywhere to promote those measures designed to maintain and strengthen the family as the fundamental unit of society.”
Looks Like the Mormon Church owned Newspaper, the Deseret News and Church owned new-site, KSL.com didn’t get the memo. In fact, in the recent mayors race, the fact that Biskuspski was living a life contrary to the Proclamation was never reported by the Church owned media to the estimated 40% of Salt Lake City residents that are Mormons.
Only 1% of Americans are homosexual. Yet, KSL.com seems to feel that their opinion and feelings are newsworthy much more frequently than 1% of the time. Today, they posted this article: Committee Approves Judge nominee despite LGBT Concerns.
Why 1% of the world’s population should be able to hold up a Judicial Appointment in Mormon Utah remains a mystery. Then there is this second article that appeared on their site today as well: Spurred by Election Results LGBT support campaign launched. Again, why the Church felt this was important enough to share on their news-site again remains a mystery. One would think that a simple email to all members of the LGBT committee by the LGBT community would suffice.
There is a war on for the heart and soul of Mormondom. That war is between the uber-wealthy Romneyites who want the Church to reflect the values of the world around them. These people don’t want negative publicity to impact their pocket books. On the other side is the rank and file members of the Church who pay their tithing and send their sons on missions to teach people about the importance of obeying the Proclamation on the Family.
No man can serve two masters. Its just a matter of time before these two groups part ways. When a Church talks out of both sides of its mouth, eventually, neither side believes anything they are saying.
