Mormon Church, preaches a rejection of homosexuality if members don’t keep celibate. The religion also rejects the children of gay parents, unless they actively disavow their parents’ “lifestyle”, and has been linked to a number of dangerous gay ‘cure’ practises.
Earlier this year, Mormon leader David A Bednar, who sits on the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, insisted that the church has no gay members. He said: “First I want to change the question – there are no homosexual members of the Church. We are not defined by sexual attraction… we are not defined by sexual behaviour. We are sons and daughters of god and all of us have different challenges in the flesh.”
