LDS Church Says DOMA Position Clear; Won't Make Nevada Statement

CARSON CITY, NEVADA -- A local LDS Church spokesman told the Las Vegas Sun that the Church would probably not make an official statement on the Nevada's question 2, which would start the process of amending the state's constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman. William Stodddard, Las Vegas-based Church spokesman told the Sun that the Church's position on the question is already clear and contained in the 1995 Proclamation on the Family.

The relevant statement in the proclamation reads, "(We) solemnly proclaim that marriage between a man and woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children." Stoddard added that local Church leaders have suggested that members get involved, "Our people have been encouraged to support Question 2 because its benefit directly coincides with our beliefs."
