Gay Mormons condemn LDS role in Argentina

Affirmation, a support group for gay and lesbian Mormons, is criticizing the LDS Church for its efforts to thwart the legalization of same-sex marriage in Argentina.

Last week, Argentina became the first Latin American nation to allow gay marriage. Mexico City also sanctions such unions.

Despite the LDS Church’s claim that it had not taken a stand on Argentina’s move to allow gay marriage, a high-ranking church official did join other religious leaders there to plan opposition to the bill.
