Mormons with a liberal outlook on life have come to a point where they can hate the sin, but love the choice.
For example, many liberal Mormons do not support homosexual sex, but support gay marriage. Many do not support abortion, but support a woman?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s right to choose. Many do not support tobacco consumption, but support the freedom for others to purchase tobacco. The list goes one.
Why do others who are not so liberal not make this distinction? Why do they see support for the choice to perform an action the same as support for the action?
