Local group of Mormons Building Bridges is growing

Mormons Building Bridges was formed more than two years ago as a place to seek and improve attitudes between members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the LGBT community.

Local leader Dorrie Burt said although the group takes no stand for or against same-sex marriage, membership in the group has grown since the federal court ruling in Utah that temporarily allowed same-sex marriages to take place.

On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Friday, Burt said a local meeting of Mormons Building Bridges will be held Tuesday, January 21 starting at 7 p.m. in the Logan Library’s Bonneville Room. The public is invited to attend.

“The conversation is phrased,” Burt said. “It’s not a debate. It’s not a panel discussion. We throw out a question, and it’s an open-ended question.

“People will come with one point of view or the other, but we do not hold these conversations to convince anybody of a certain way. They are held so people can share their questions and their answers and learn from each other.”

Burt said the Tuesday conservation will be “Should the Utah Legislature Pass Senate Bill 10: the Housing and Employment Opportunity Act.” Logan City has already adopted the legislation on a local level.
