Mass protest over Mormon church denying baptism to children of gay couples

Thousands of Mormons gathered in a park to resign en masse from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, protesting the church’s new policy regarding the children of same-sex couples. The church distributed “Handbook 1”, which contained new rules for the church such as not allowing “natural or adopted” children of same-sex couples to obtain a name and not receiving the church’s blessing until they turn 18. The new rules introduced by the church includes the refusal to baptise children of same-sex couples, even if the child is straight and estranged from their parents.

Mormon Church to exclude children of same-sex couples from getting blessed and baptized until they are 18

Children living in a same-sex household may not be blessed as babies or baptized until they are 18, the Mormon Church declared in a new policy.

The policy changes, which also state that those in a same-sex marriage are to be considered apostates, set off confusion and turmoil among many Mormons after the policy was leaked online. The changes in the handbook for local church leaders for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were confirmed Thursday by church spokesman Eric Hawkins.
