Standing Up for the Family!!

We as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints need to take a stand and defend traditional marriage. It is really amazing to me that back in 1995 the brethren came out with “The Family: A Proclamation to the World.” Compared to now and the worlds view on marriage it didn’t seem like it was that bad. There were attacks on the marriage but nothing like there is now. They were so inspired to put in the following line: “The family is ordained of God. Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan.”

It started first with legalizing marriage between the same sex and has only gone down hill from then. I have two teenage daughters who have what they refer to as “transgender” girls in their school. It is a tough situation because our school does a lot of camps and retreats and the situation of whether those girls should be able to sleep in the same room as each other and also other girls. This is yet another attach on traditional marriage. These teenage girls are so confused by what the world is teaching them and allowing them to call normal.

“Another purpose is to reaffirm that the Church has a single, undeviating standard of sexual morality: intimate relations are acceptable to God only between a husband and a wife who are united in the bonds of matrimony.” (The divine institution of Marriage)

Sex has become the most important thing to the world. So because of the emphasis of sex is so important those young girls do not understand what is going on in their own bodies. They are so focused on sex that they are totally missing the most important part of a relationship is friendship and love and sex is just an added benefit.

“The Savior taught that we should love the sinner without condoning the sin. In the case of the woman taken in adultery, He treated her kindly but exhorted her to “sin no more.” His example manifested the highest love possible.”

We need to show love for these kids that have not understanding but my question would be is what can we do?
