Is The Mormon Church Changing Its Views On Homosexuality?
Is The Mormon Church Changing Its Views On Homosexuality?

AIR DATE: November 21, 2013

Five out of seven Mormon members of the U.S. Senate backed a bill to end workplace discrimination against gays and lesbians. After the vote, Sen. Harry Reid said it signaled a shift in the way the Mormon Church thought about same-sex relationships. But the church has insisted that its position hasn't changed at all, and that tolerance for gays and lesbians can coexist alongside a theological mandate to form heterosexual marriages. Can the two things coexist? Is it this support for non-discrimination the first step toward increased tolerance for gay and lesbian relationships?
