Jana Beatty Weldon, California – Hatred is not what Jesus taught.

My family is one of the oldest Mormon families in Utah – one of my great-great-uncles actually drove Brigham Young’s wagon part of the way on the trek to Utah. Even though I decided years ago that I could no longer be involved in the Church on a spiritual basis because of the increasing tones of intolerance and hatred, I always considered myself culturally Mormon, due to my historical family connections with the Church. Now, I’m not so sure that I can even keep that bond. From our history, Mormons should know all about religious persecution – and look what the Church is doing now! Persecuting people just like Mormons were persecuted over 150 years ago! Jesus would be ashamed.
