The American Fork High School PTSA cancelled a Thursday night meeting after the Utah Pride Center and some Utah County residents alleged a presentation on the meeting agenda would have stigmatized and vilified gays and lesbians. The meeting was to have included one presentation on pornography and another on gays and lesbians by Stephen Graham of Standard of Liberty, "an LDS-oriented educational corporation which exists to raise awareness of sexual activist movements overrunning America's Christian-moral-cultural life," according to its Web site.

LDS folks...any responses to this?
The book I am using is Doctrine and Covenants Student Manual (Religion 324 and 325) copyrights 1981, 2001. Page 346 in reference to D&C 134:4, 9. The Relation of Religion and Human Law.
President Heber J. Grant (7th President of church) said:
"One of the fundamental articles of faith promulgated by the Prophet Joseph Smith was:'We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience; and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where or what they may'
"But we claim absolutely no right, no prerogative whatever to interfere with any other people.(Conference Report, Apr 1921)
Elder John Widtsoe: the Prophet Joseph Smith advocated that "a good government must secure for every citizen the free exercise of conscience. Matters of belief or religious practice should not interfered with, unless they oppose laws for the common good. There should be NO MINGLING OF RELIGIOUS INFLUENCE WITH CIVIL GOVERNMENTS." (Joseph Smith, P. 215)
