"More than 300 Mormon church members who are not gay drew shouts of approval and tears from spectators while marching in the Utah Gay Pride Parade in downtown Salt Lake City, reports CBS.
"The Mormons say they sought to send a message of love to Utah's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community by joining the annual parade Sunday. Their participation marked the first time such a large group of Mormons took part in the parade, organizers said.
The Mormon participation was organized by a group calling itself Mormons Building Bridges.
This constitutes a radical change in Mormon policy. In 2008 they forcefully supported Proposition 8 to end same-sex marriages.
Religions are getting so desperate to gain members and public approval, they are abandoning their convictions.
