If the Mormons, Why Not the Catholics.

A Mormon, gay detente?

The California marriage wars have produced a bitter feud between gay rights activists and the LDS church, which underwrote much of the campaign against same-sex marriage there.

But the Salt Lake City ABC affiliate reports on an unusual meeting:

ABC 4 News has learned that the Church invited several prominent gay leaders to its Christmas concert this weekend, including Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black.

Black, a screenwriter, won an Oscar for the movie, “Milk.”

Saturday, at the LDS Church’s Christmas concert, he and a handful of Utah gay activists were VIP guests. …

In a lengthy phone conversation, Black told ABC 4 that it was “a honor” to see the concert and an, “extraordinary act of goodwill.”

He also told us a conversation has been started between the gay community and the church and that, “both sides are trying to find common ground.”
