Mormons affirm marriage beliefs
Mormon leaders have once again used their biannual conference to outline the faith’s commitment to the belief that marriage is an institution exclusive to a man and a woman.
L. Tom Perry, a highranking church leader, cautioned Mormons not to be swayed by media and entertainment that he said make the minority seem like the majority.
Perry said strong “traditional” families are the basic units of a stable society, economy and values. He said the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints would continue to lead on the issue. “We want our voice to be heard against all of the counterfeit and alternative lifestyles that try to replace the family organization that God Himself established,” said Perry, a member of the faith’s Quorum of the Twelve.
