Salt Lake City, UT—The church has generously donated $5 million to support Syrian refugees, and the First Presidency has also encouraged members to assist those fleeing violence throughout the world. At the same time, the church has quietly updated the Handbook, stipulating that humanitarian donations not be used for children of gay refugee couples.
In a hastily organized interview, Elder Christofferson explained that the policy will prevent conflicts between gay parents and their children. “What we really want to avoid,” clarified Elder Christofferson, “would be conflicts between children and their same-sex attracted parents who have committed such a grievous sin.” He elaborated that “such children might get the wrong idea about their parent’s relationship if they got food or shelter from the church.”
Elder Christofferson was quick to add that “those children who are of age and who denounce their parents’ sinful lifestyles can apply to the First Presidency for aid, thus making this assistance freely available to all and without any detrimental long-term consequences.”
Workers from the Red Cross and other agencies were at first perplexed by the stipulations. Many had felt that Mormons were trying to protect the rights of all people, include gay people. Said one worker, “well, we didn’t know what to do with those donations, since some of the kids might have one gay parent and one straight parent.” The worker continued that “we thought maybe (the children) would get half of what they needed, you know, since one parent was not, as Mormons put it, ‘an apostate perpetuating in a terrible, terrible sin.’” Workers tried to get clarification about how the aid should be used, but the further directions were still ambiguous.
“Much to everyone’s ones great relief, especially the Mormons, what finally fixed the whole situation,” said a volunteer from Doctors Without Borders, “is that we realized that ISIS hates gays even more than Mormons, so they had pretty much killed most of them before they could even flee Syria.”
i almost peed my pants. first, in fear this was a thing. then laughing.
Yeah, because aid funding is obviously exactly the same thing as a religious ordinance.
This is one of the defects of our age. People seem to think that if you don’t support gay marriage, you have to turn in your human-card and forswear ever acting humane on anything.
Because these days – no amount of good behavior elsewhere can forgive someone from the heinous crime of not supporting your preferred method of orgasm-ing.
This society really does do all it’s moral thinking between its legs.
You score high on originality on this one. Good one. Sadly though you are preaching to the proverbial choir here. Most of us agree with you and your thoughts- though they are placed skillfully between the lines.
In my experience, Mormons are the ones who see people as walking genitalia. You’re always thinking about when couples are going to marry, when their next kid’s coming in, how terrible it is that such-and-such are “living in sin.” What they must be doing when no one but God is watching.
Your heaven is Babies Forever, and LGBTQIA+ people aren’t invited. Because sex, sex, sex, sex, pee pees, sex, hoo hoos, sex, butts, sex, and also sex.
It’s humiliating to keep being reduced to what’s in between my legs when I talk to Mormons, and I wish that you jerks would stop. Other people see me as a person, not as a sack of wet meat. And they listen and empathize when I tell them what I have to go through.
This is too funny. I love it!
