"Members of the Church who have same-sex attractions, but don't act on them, can continue to enjoy full fellowship in the Church...Unlike in times past, the Church does not necessarily advise those with same-sex attraction to marry those of the opposite sex.

relaxing its previous pro-sham marriage position
Ok, so what they're saying is that being gay and a Mormon is fine as long as you don't do any of the icky gay stuff like finding companionship and living a healthy and full life. Look, I don't want to tell people how to run their crazy space church,* but that's not really outreach so much as it is grudging acquiescence.

We just think gays should lead lonely, sexless lives."
