Reaction by Herbert, others to gay marriage ruling is rotten
Ogden, UT, 28 December 2013 – Ogden Standard Examiner contributing writer Gregory A. Clark has written an interesting piece reminding Governor Herbert and the LDS Church their relatively recent support of “traditional marriage” was not always the status quo. LDS Church presidents beginning with Joseph Smith believed polygamy was ordained of God and according to Brigham Young always practiced by, “the Lord’s servants”. Perhaps now that marriage equality is the “status quo” in Utah the LDS Church will once again allow such marriages to be sealed. Instead of spending our tax dollars fighting Judge Shelby’s ruling the Church should spend time figuring out how much tithing 700 newly sealed couples could add to the bank.
