How media learned about the LDS Church’s gay policy

The producers.

If they aren’t getting themselves into trouble, then they do it to others?

Such was the case with a lead KUTV2 producer and the LDS Church over the church’s controversial gay policy, KUTV2 reporter Amy Nay said.

The producer was visiting one of the websites of ex-Mormon advocate John Dehlin. And there it was: a certain portion of the LDS Church’s Handbook 1, a guide for leaders. The pages had new provisions of church blessings withheld from children of a parent in a same-sex relationship and the classification of apostasy for those in a same-sex marriage.

That’s what Nay told the author of this post. She offered as much after the policy was rolled out, while covering a candlelight vigil around Pioneer Park in Salt Lake City. Nay spoke with the author shortly before the event began.

Nay did not offer the producer’s name.
