'Wisdom' of elders sends young running

To the editor:

With all that's going on in the world, with people, especially young people, looking for a kind of sanctuary and sanity, with their world being turned upside down, the elders of the Mormon Church saw fit to issue an edict banning the entire LGBT community from its doors.

And why stop there?

The children of such parents are prevented from baptism until they are 18 or leave their parents homes.

Ah, the wisdom of the elders! See how the young people run.
