Recent changes to Handbook 1 that define same-sex marriage as apostasy and delay the baptism of children from same-sex marriages have caused confusion, sorrow, and even anger among many members of the LDS Church. In this special episode, we seek greater understanding of these changes, dissecting what’s been said by the Church, what’s been said by pundits, and what’s been said on social media, and how we can get our head around the whole thing and move forward in faith. Author and former Mormon bishop Steve Westover and founder of LeadingLDS, stake presidency member, and former bishop Kurt Francom join us for a robust panel discussion. *Note that no one is speaking in an official capacity based on one’s calling.
