Mormon Stories - LDS
In October 2007 a new LDS-themed periodical was launched entitled"The Mormon Worker." This publication is dedicated to promoting social justice within Mormonism. In this two-part series, we interview William VanWagenen, one of the founders of the Mormon Worker. William VanWagenen is not your typical Mormon. Not only has he studied at the Harvard Divinity School, but he is also an LDS peace activist, who was recently kidnapped in Iraq while on a peacekeeping mission. In this intervew, William discusses his views on poverty, war, socialism and justice within the Mormon framework.

A new pamphlet about homosexuality appeared on the church’s website in late July, 2007. The pamphlet is entitled God Loveth His Children, and, among other things, says that the Church does not know what causes same-sex attractions but does not believe sexual abuse and sexual experimentation in childhood are responsible. It declares that same-sex attractions are not considered sinful but affirms that acting on those attractions is incompatible with God’s plan for families in the afterlife. It urges same-sex attracted LDS members to remain active in the church and asks other members to treat them with love and respect. This panel will discuss this new pamphlet and welcomes a wide-ranging and frank discussion of this important topic.
