LDSGBT Now?

The LDS Church recently reversed their policy from November 2015, not allowing children of same-sex couples to be baptized or blessed until the age of 18. Once of age, they still had to denounce their parents' relationship.




Below is a link to the original declaration in November 2015:

And, here is the link to the newly-announced policy from last week:

Finally, a bit of analysis from the Salt Lake Tribune:

Shout Out to Gov. Herbert!

We have to give credit where credit is due and give a shout out to Gov. Herbert for vetoing a line item in the state budget for a sound barrier along a stretch of road that is yet to have home built by Garbett Homes. We're pretty sure this will happen eventually, but we like that the Governor was willing to use the veto pen to show lobbyists that can't be this sloppy.
