Earlier today Buzzfeed blogger (and Mormon) McKay Coppins wrote the following:
In an evolution from its past teachings, the Mormon Church launched a new website Thursday asserting that sexuality is not a personal choice.
The experience of same-sex attraction is a complex reality for many people. The attraction itself is not a sin, but acting on it is. Even though individuals do not choose to have such attractions, they do choose how to respond to them. With love and understanding, the Church reaches out to all God’s children, including our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters.
