Thousands of Mormons gathered in a park to resign en masse from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, protesting the church’s new policy regarding the children of same-sex couples. The church distributed “Handbook 1”, which contained new rules for the church such as not allowing “natural or adopted” children of same-sex couples to obtain a name and not receiving the church’s blessing until they turn 18. The new rules introduced by the church includes the refusal to baptise children of same-sex couples, even if the child is straight and estranged from their parents. The Mormon church leadership recently announced a change to LDS policy on same-sex-marriage.
