Winner-take-all scenarios are regularly pursued in the culture wars across the country by both sides.
That is unfortunate. Some state legislatures seem intent on making religious freedom so broad that it simply sounds like a license to discriminate on any grounds. Some LGBT advocates take an equally uncompromising position on the other side. We believe there is a better way. I have described what the Church has been advocating for years—urging mutual respect, balancing the competing rights of people within a pluralistic society.
I have spent a lot of time on this last subject because of its topicality and because it provides one of the best examples of the challenges in navigating boundaries while the public and our members are caught in a tsunami of changing social values. This is made more complex when those values are not shared in every country across the world, and so the Church looks for principles anchored to scripture and doctrine.
