Mormon Elder Boyd K. Packer still hasn’t corrected his inaccurate and dangerous statements. Five days ago, in the wake of multiple suicides of gay teens who were “bullied to death,” the second highest-ranking official in the Mormon Church told an audience of millions that same-sex attraction was “immoral and impure” and can be “overcome” – something the American Psychiatric Association and the American Psychological Association both say is harmful.
One hundred thousand people have signed our open letter to Elder Packer asking him to make it right. But he still hasn’t expressed the truth, love and encouragement our kids need to hear. Sign onto our open letter today and then share this important action with your friends and family. Next Tuesday, HRC will present the Church with over 100,000 petition signatures calling on them to correct the record.
