Re: Same sex marriage considered apostasy

I feel the need to defend the faith that I love. One thought that passes my mind is how quantum physics seems so not intuitive. That even though we don't understand, it is how things work. I believe that the 15 men in the leading councils are inspired. That they are men that speak up when they see s...
