The LDS Church has had a recent swing of opinions on policy.The Prop. 8 failure in California and the failed Amendment 3 defense in Utah have surprisingly led to the promotion of anti-discrimination for LGBT people.
Whether it's to mend its reputation, or its another proclaimed revelation, LDS members are left in confusion as to do as the Church says, or as the Church does--since the LDS church does not have to (and will not) abide by the new anti-discrimination laws it itself officially supported. Other members are praying for confirmation and testimony that this new request to not exclude LGBT people from public activities is something their hearts can be softened to accept. (What?!?!).
It will be interesting to see what leaders will say at this conference, let alone their own "General Conference" meetings this April and October. Perhaps they will avoid the topics altogether.
