Masturbation, sharing beds lead to homosexuality, according to leaked Mormon teachings

Source: Kansas City Star

A newly leaked Mormon church document from 1981 warns church leaders that masturbation can turn a person gay.

The document also reveals that Mormon missionaries were banned from sharing beds and dressing and bathing in front of each other to discourage homosexual behavior.

The handbook was leaked this week by MormonLeaks, a Las Vegas-based transparency group. The document, called “Homosexuality,” was created to guide church leaders working with homosexual church members.

“As we have previously stated, homosexuality is a sin in the same degree as adultery and fornication,” the guidebook states. “Powerful forces are seeking to establish this sinful practice as an acceptable way of life.”

The GOP doesnt care if you like their tax plan. Heres why

Congressional Republicans’ collective sigh of relief after passing tax legislation may seem confusing. Won’t voters hold them accountable in 2018 for passing such an historically unpopular bill? The answer is “no,” for several reasons.

First, the bill’s unpopularity may be somewhat overstated. A lot of the disapproval expressed in surveys is more about the bill’s sponsors than about the bill itself. In these polarized times, almost anything carrying the president’s endorsement is going to be a non-starter for more than half the population. If Trump were to designate ice cream the official White House dessert tonight, at least a third of us would stop “screaming for it” tomorrow.

This is not to say that this legislation should be more popular. But let’s face it, efforts to win over Blue America with fewer corporate tax cuts, fewer cuts for wealthy individuals, or fewer changes to popular tax breaks would have probably fallen on deaf ears in this environment.

PLACATING THE BASE

More importantly, as University of Glasgow political scientist Christopher Jan Carman and I have found, Republicans in Congress simply don’t care as much about public opinion as Democrats do. The ideological convergence between voters and legislators is more than three times greater among Democratic legislators than among Republicans.
