The Church released an official statement today regarding the much talked about reality TV show coming this month to TLC:
A new program on the TLC cable channel to air later this month, titled “My Husband’s Not Gay,” has generated significant news media coverage this week. Several journalists have asked the Church questions about the program because it features three Mormon couples. While the Church has no connection to the program and rarely comments on commercial productions, Church spokesman Eric Hawkins gave the following statement to the media regarding the issues being discussed:
“The decision for a woman and man to marry is deeply personal. While the Church does not promote marriage as a treatment method for same-sex attraction, couples who are trying to be lovingly supportive of each other while being true to their religious convictions deserve our support and respect.”
Official information regarding the Church’s position and teachings on same-sex attraction can be found here:
