Hmm...

Make a rule that doesn't really change anything, except perhaps in some areas -- but not where it matters.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Yeah -- for their next trick they'll allow atheists in --- but only if they believe in god.......

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

It's shifting the plaintiff in the lawsuits. "Nope not our rules we allow teh Gays can't sue us, must sue the local chapter."

Well we had this thread about it from another story angle

The Mormons may leave their sponsoring of the church which could allow for other groups to do so, which could go either way really.

To that extent it's a small step forward; it clearly identifies religion as the source of the bigotry.

It's a costly and losing position any lawyer worth his salt can see that, so I expect they laid all the cards on the table. Either they change the rules, in such as way as to shift the blame away from the main organisation to the local chapters or they would be on the receiving end of a billion dollar lawsuit they will lose. Maybe I am being cynical but that is the only reason they would reverse course.
