Thank you Jon for your comment, because this mixed up compassion is what is guiding the opinions of all my peers at the University. Even those who are not that "interested" in the issue, are swayed in favor of Same Sex Marriages because of their compassion. Thank goodness for the prespective the Atonement gives us, to help us understand the how to treat one another in relation to eternal laws.

Let me offer another perspective on abortion, one that I held before joining
the church.


I myself was against abortion.  However, I felt physically sick when I
thought of those children born to drug addicts and worse.  Why should they
have to suffer?  Abortion was a much better choice.

Of course, I now have much greater knowledge.

It is interesting to see how compassion can be used by Satan to turn our
minds to support things which are abominations.  This is just like the
gay-marriage issue, where our compassion can sometimes blind us.

But as we all know, mercy cannot rob justice, and compassion cannot trump
eternal laws.

Jon
