11 Scriptural Reasons Latter-day Saints should Support Marriage Equality  
 

Love Thy Neighbor

Jesus taught, "Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.  On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."
(Matthew 22:39-40) 

Is love shown to our Gay and Lesbian neighbors by taking away their civil right to marry and live according to their beliefs and conscience? When the Lord says “all the law” hangs on love, do we believe that includes the law of marriage? Do the laws of marriage hang on love or tradition?

The reality is, many Gays and Lesbians are fighting for the right to marry according to this greatest law of God — Love.
