LDS Bigots ban “cross-gender” children’s Halloween Costumes as inappropriate!

No cross gender costumes for Mormons

Sandy Utah- Fliers announcing the local Mormon Ward house Halloween event, known as Trunk or Treat was tainted with Devilish hatred and bigotry. The fliers prohibit children from attending the event if they choose a cross-gendered costume. Scott Trotter, spokesperson for the Mormon church assumes the ban "was a means to promote appropriate dress." The local Bishop ( Mormon Bishops are similar in authority to Ministers in Christianity) Dennis Toone says "anyone who doesn’t like it doesn’t have to come.”

Clearly the sanctity of traditional Halloween is under attack. If children are allowed to dress in cross gender costumes Halloween would end as we know it. If a 4 year old girl is dressed as the tin man or a 5 year old boy dressed as a witch it’d be a dark evil road our children may never recover from. What would be next? Children dressing up as animals? Lions, tigers and bears? OH MY!!!

The homophobic bigoted insecurities of a few narrow minded women who published this flier are an insult to fair-minded citizens. We cannot allow such hatred and insecurities to taint innocent young children’s minds. This "church" with the support of its local leadership is sanctioning hate, discrimination and bigotry as acceptable societal norms and it must NOT be tolerated.
