    Mormon leader reaffirms faith's opposition to gay marriage

    A top Mormon leader reaffirmed the religion's opposition to same-sex marriage on Saturday during a conference watched by members around the world, the Associated Press reported. Dallin Oaks, a member of a top governing body called the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, urged members to follow church teachings that dictate marriage should be reserved for heterosexual men and women. He said that's the ideal home for children to be raised. He acknowledged that view contradicts federal protections under legalized gay marriage in the United States. "We have witnessed a rapid and increasing public acceptance of cohabitation without marriage and same-sex marriage. The corresponding media advocacy, education and even occupational requirements pose difficult challenges for Latter Day Saints," Oaks said, according to the AP. "We must try to balance the competing demands of following the gospel law in our personal lives and teachings even as we seek to show love for all." After the Utah-based church received backlash in 2008 for helping lead the fight for California's Proposition 8 constitutional ban on gay marriage, religious leaders have said they had worked to develop a more empathetic LGBT tone, but in 2015 the church adopted new rules banning children living with gay parents from being baptized until age 18.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
