       Follow the prophet
           n June 29, every LDS ward in California had a statement by the
           First Presidency read over the pulpit. In it, President Thomas S.
           Monson and his counselors asked members to “do all [they] can”
           to support a new proposed amendment to legally define marriage
           as a union between a man and a woman. The amendment would
  overturn the May 15 California Supreme Court ruling but uphold a 2000
  prohibition on same-sex marriage.
     The backlash reaction was almost immediate. While some members
  agreed with the statement or disagreed but chose to follow their Prophet,
  others became outspoken antagonists of the Church position. The latter,
  of course, caught wind with activists and the media, and resulted in an
  outpouring of news articles across California and Utah and blog post-
  ings that now circulate the globe. These individuals claim to be “active
  Mormons” and disagree with the Prophet’s counsel.
     Regardless of their rationale for disagreeing, any “active Mormon”
  sustains President Thomas S. Monson as the prophet, seer, revelator and
  mouth-piece of God. “Active Mormons” raise their right hand during
  General Conference and sustain him and the other 14 apostles as the lead-
  ers of God’s church on the earth today. In sustaining, they are not voting
  for them or agreeing with their position, they are promising to support
  and listen to them.
     Consequently, “active Mormons” know that when the prophet speaks,
  the debate is over. No matter how diligently someone reads their scrip-
  tures, attends church or pays a full tithe, unless they sustain President
  Monson, his counselors and the other 12 apostles, they are not “active
  Mormons.”
     But the biggest opposition to the First Presidency statement comes
  from those who argue, as one blogger put it, that “the Church does not ex-
  pect its members to think, investigate, or use their minds to look into this
  issue.” They say the Church is robbing members of their agency, and cite
  Joseph Smith’s famous statement indicating the Church should “teach
  them [members] correct principles and they govern themselves.”
     Well the correct principles are clear. The practice of homosexuality
  has always been seen as a sin by the LDS church. As the First Presidency
  letter stated, “the Church’s teachings and position on this moral issue
  are unequivocal,” and no increase in popularity or social acceptance
  will change that. This position is not robbing Church members of free-
  thinking; it’s asking them to stand up for what is central to their core
  doctrine — that man and woman are inherently and divinely matched for
  one another. No other combination will do.
     But despite such an undeniably clear stance on this issue, the First
  Presidency and the Prophet still let men govern themselves; they still
  preserve the agency of every member of the Church.
     The brethren never said that any member of the Church who voted
  against the amendment would be excommunicated or disfellowshipped.
  No record will be kept of how each Latter-day Saint votes and no
  member will be held accountable for how they vote. No one’s God-given
  agency is being removed, and no one is being told not to think for them-
  selves. They are being taught and then left to make their own decisions,
  being held accountable only to their creator.
     For many people, this issue may be one of epic, even faith-shattering
  proportions. But it shouldn’t be.
     The brethren never told Church members to shun those with homo-
  sexual tendencies or view them as less than human. They called fol-
  lowers to defend a critical point of doctrine: the divinely ordained role
  of men and women within the family. This is not an issue the Church
  stance will evolve on; this is a fundamental part of Latter-day Saint
  doctrine endorsed by the Quorum of the Twelve, the First Presidency                                                            judgment and openly acknowledges       ter the Church read from pulpits
