Redpill: Mormons and Children of Gay Couples

The red pill is what you take when you want to break out of consensus reality. Consensus reality is what your culture is telling you is true because everyone around you is repeating the same things and getting reinforcement from each other. Taking the red pill means learning how to live without that reinforcement. It’s not pleasant.

This story is about the recent changes in the Mormon church with respect to same sex couples and their children. Essentially, if you are the child of a rapist or pedophile or murderer, the way the church behaves to you is welcoming and compassionate. But if you are the child of a same sex couple, you are excluded.

This podcast is from Mormon Stories and is a rebroadcast from Radio West. 

Essentially, the church is doubling down. Here are some questions that immediately jumped to my mind:

Why now?

Why so severe?

Which church is next?

Will they double down on women next and in what way?
