Mormon Church Leaders Agree with Same-Sex Marriage Law

Though some members of the Mormon Church may disagree with the U.S. Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage, their leaders are showing their support of the law more. One of the high-ranking apostles in the church, Dallin Oaks, says that it would not be right to apply one’s personal convictions to a situation like this one. He and other leaders are encouraging their members to do the same. Oaks thinks that Kim Davis, the county clerk in Kentucky, should not have brought her personal, religious beliefs to her job. He uses Davis as an example of how not to behave, and is continuing to stress the duty of following the law to others.
