Rejected Gay Marriage Amendment

The House rejected a proposed constitutional amendment barring gay marriage. The vote was 236 for and 187 against, far short of the two-thirds needed. The Senate killed a similar proposal in June. This was the expected outcome.

The Church's position on same-gender marriage is as follows:
The doctrine of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints affirms marriage between a man and a woman, and opposes same-gender unions and any other sexual relations outside of marriage. Marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God to fulfill the eternal destiny of His children.

The union of husband and wife assures perpetuation of the race and provides a divinely-ordained setting for the nurturing and teaching of children. This sacred family setting, with father and mother and children firmly committed to each other and to righteous living, offers the best hope for avoiding many of the ills that afflict society.
