Many of us are familiar with the struggle that so many lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender teens face. Anti-LGBT bullying in schools is out of control and has led to a number of recent teen suicides.

Yet a top Mormon Church apostle has chosen this precise moment to broadcast a message of intolerance to millions.

Boyd K. Packer, the second-highest Mormon leader, said same-sex attraction is "impure and unnatural" and can be overcome, and that same-sex unions are morally wrong and "against God's law and nature."

Please add your name to our open letter showing the Mormon Church hierarchy that it has risked further alienating vulnerable LGBT youth with potentially devastating consequences – and after you sign the letter, please post it on Facebook and share it with your friends so people everywhere know that these views are scientifically wrong and misguided.

I signed it.
I thought the same.
ok, I signed also.
Quite frankly, I can't take anything that a Mormon leader says seriously. I mean, they believe that Jesus Christ came to America to preach to Indians that were descended from Israelites, and that the angel Moroni gave golden plates to Joseph Smith so that he could translate them from "Reformed Egyptian" into English using a seer stone, and they expect us to value their opinions on other matters?
sounds like an accomplishment to me! lol
This is exactly what Mormons do all the time. They avoid those who have a valid rhetoric to confront them and be successful about it.
No one should deny that same-sex attraction is unnatural as otherwise none of us would be here today but this is the 21st century and no one should give a damn. This man is full of shit so I've signed it.
I would deny it. It occurs in nature every day. Bonobos do it. Dolphins have freakin' gay orgies. Maybe it's not the norm, but it goes to far to say it's unnatural.
Signed. I hate people who discriminate.
I have just signed this, and posted it on Facebook as well.
Why does religion breed such hatred to anyone I believe they are just wanting to be in the limelight and are just plain evil.
Signed - thanks
