Summary of LDS Church Beliefs

Summarized by Kent Larsen

Features: Practical Piety
(New York NY) Village Voice 27Jan99 C9
By Carla Spartos
A Guide for the Perplexed

The Village Voice surveyed religions in New York City, asking basic information about their size, background, current leaders, costs and beliefs. The article is done in kind of a consumer-oriented fashion; a guide to the beliefs for those that are looking for something to join.

The LDS Church is included along with a fairly accurate portrayal of LDS beliefs, including the LDS Church's positions on Women in the Church, Homosexuality, Abortion, Euthanasia, Interfaith Marriage and Millenialism. It also gives a 'Scandal Sheet,' which indicates that while the LDS Church allowed blacks to be ordained to the priesthood in 1978, critics still charge that the Church hasn't repudiated the pre-1978 teachings about blacks.
