The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued the following statement Friday after a court ruling on same-sex marriage in Utah:

The Church has been consistent in its support of traditional marriage while teaching that all people should be treated with respect. This ruling by a district court will work its way through the judicial process. We continue to believe that voters in Utah did the right thing by providing clear direction in the state constitution that marriage should be between a man and a woman and we are hopeful that this view will be validated by a higher court.

A stretch.. Your church is backing basically "Jim Crow" laws here. Is that cool with you?

<quoted text>No... that is not true.

The Church is pushing obedience to the gospel... and members must obey the commandments of the gospel in order to achieve getting back into the Kingdom of God.
So it's ok with you if local Utah businesses have "no gays allowed" signs?

Yes it's pushing obedience, so that members mindlessly give their money to make rich a bunch of old men in SLC. "Shut up and do what you're told " should be the motto of the LDS church. God help the member that thinks for themselves.

NO That is NOT okay with me. The Church and God says to LOVE ONE ANOTHER. That is personal choice of those business owners... I do not answer for them.

I sit here and think why business owners would do that... and I wonder if gay couples newly married are coming in disrupting business and IDK... I think you would have to answer to them.

I know I have seen certain business owners put up signs saying no backpacks allowed in stores... or no more than 2 kids under the age of 18 allowed in the store at the same time because they disrupt business.
