From the article:
New Mormon policy bans acceptance of children of same-sex couples - LA Times
The new policies are part of "Handbook 1," a guide for lay leaders of the Utah-based Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which has the actively fought gay marriage. It was a Utah
case that helped set the table for the U.S. Supreme Court to legalize gay marriage across the country in June. ...

The revised language is a significant step for the Mormon Church, which has long taught that same-sex marriage between its members may require disciplinary action. Under the new policy, those in a gay marriage are to be considered apostate, akin to a dissenter or even a traitor.
Guess that answers the lie of an earlier OP which claimed the opposite.

Hope those in the LDS faith is ready to face the intolerance and hate speech from the self-proclaimed "tolerant \ love crowd" for your religious convictions.

did you read the first sentence ?
The children can join the Mormon Church when and if they:
1) ARE ADULTS.
2) ACCEPT the teachings of the church which disavow homosexual marriage.

This keeps their homosexualist parents or guardians away from participation
in church cermemonies while they are minors.

If you don't like it, don't be a Mormon.

Since you made mentioned to the first sentence in the article, it reads in its entirety:
"The children of same-sex parents will be banned from blessings and baptism until they turn 18 and disavow gay marriage under a new Mormon Church policy that deems homosexual parents to be apostates, or people who have renounced their faith."

The Church is a matter of the individual heart, not a group mentality.

Of course it will. Starting a second one was ridiculous.
