Interim Policies Approved for USA
After extensive discussion of USA National Conference recommendations, interim policies regarding same-gender marriage and ordination have been approved by the Council of Twelve and the First Presidency for the USA only.
Policies will be effective March 31, 2014, and will be evaluated after two years to determine if any updates or revisions are needed to address questions not previously anticipated.
These policies have been distributed to field officers for the purpose of training local leaders for implementation. Please contact your pastor or mission center president for more information on these policies.
Though these policies have now been released by the First Presidency and Council of Twelve Apostles, no official action can occur until March 31, 2014.
