COR INVICTUS Gay Mormon Social Network Debates Conference Remarks

Pressbox (Press Release) -
October 12, 2010 – COR INVICTUS, the brand new gay Mormon social network, is only in its pre launch phase, but that hasn’t stopped current members from lighting up the discussion forums with debates over Boyd K. Packer’s latest controversial conference talk.
While COR INVICTUS takes no official stance on the debate, the site advertises itself as “nonjudgmental”, and a social network for all gay Mormons (or past Mormons), no matter the individual’s current church standing. This means that its members are free to talk, debate, and start conversations over any current issue.
The current debate over the remarks of Boyd K. Packer at LDS General Conference this month is in full swing on the COR INVICTUS forums. Some argue that, though heavily eluded, Packer was not speaking specifically about homosexuals when he stated that no one was born with certain tendencies toward evil. Others are more curious about the omission of parts of talk in the online and printed versions.
“This is an open forum”, explains one Website contributor. “While we do moderate it to some degree, mainly to prevent fighting, bad language, and other offensive content, we want it to be a safe place for people to come and share their opinions.”
And it doesn’t stop there. Website owners have been committed from the beginning to the prevention of gay suicides. “The recent media coverage over the young men and women who have taken their lives over the issue of homosexuality and bullying, tells us that a safe place for these people is needed now, more than ever. Gay Mormons, and other Christians in general, have an especially hard situation to deal with that can easily become overwhelming. We encourage those people to explore their resources. Help is available, and we want to be one of the resources people can turn to.”
COR INVICTUS started Website prelaunch back in August. The Website is currently open for registration and use of site features, but the site is stressing that some changes still need to be completed before the Website is officially launched. The site is targeted to gay Mormon men and women, as well as their family and friends.
