    On top of that, I assume, culturally, Latter-day Saints have been a whole lot a lot more open up to their gay members, their LGBT other participants of the church. As well as this felt type of simply - it felt unpleasant. And also it felt shocking and surprising in 2015 when it became a reality. And so I think a whole lot individuals are breathing a sigh of alleviation today.

    HALE: Well, the church isn't really open concerning how these decisions are made. And they're extremely deferential to the president, Russell M. Nelson, as well as his therapists. However this is the week - we're leading up to the Church's General Seminar which takes place biannually. And the top church leadership meets before General Seminar, as well as they introduced it because meeting. Generally, the factors provided were that this would eliminate a great deal of stress and pain that these gay couples and also their families would be going through. However I believe that was constantly kind of there.

    SHAPIRO: Currently, the church claims it will no longer think about LGBT couples apostates. But it still takes into consideration same-sex relationships to be wicked. Explain that distinction.

    HALE: Well, this is truly important. So in kind of the excitement from some participants about this modification, there's still the truth that it is a - really hard to be gay as well as a Saint. And also the church still sees any connection - it's important to claim that being gay is not the wrong in the eyes of church leaders yet that acting upon that partnership, as they would certainly state - being in a sex-related partnership is the sin. Which hasn't altered.

    But that word apostate was actually solid. Like, you generally can not locate a more powerful word to explain wrong in the church. It generally suggests someone, you recognize, in a rebellion of what the church stands for. And so decreasing that, I believe, gives some relief. Yet I think people are quick to state - well, it doesn't suggest that they have the authorization or the self-confidence of their church that what they're doing is right.

    As well as it's - I require to make it clear; the church did not ask forgiveness today. This is not an apology, as well as they're not saying, we slipped up. They're saying this is a discovery. And that obtains confusing, also, since it was initially a revelation. And also this is a discovery taking it back.
