The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints: Change the church's "Proclamation" about marriage and families!

Marriage equality is important to the creation of families. Same-sex families can provide stable, safe, and loving enviornments for orphans, foster children, and adoptee children along with their own biological children. Denying these same rights and privileges denies these children suitable homes and famlies. The Mormon church as a whole has a strong emphasis on community and famiily which provides strong moral compasses for children. We are asking the church leaders to change the stances on marriage between a man and woman only. Marriage is the beginning of family creation no matter the orientations of the parents.. As long as the family is created in LOVE there should be no question about who the parents love or how the family is created.

Check out this "Proclamation" written and read in 1995 by former leader of the church President Gordon B. Hinkley.
