The Proclamation in Pictures

"We the first Presidency and Council of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, solemnly proclaim that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children."
"All human beings-male and female-are created in the image of God.  Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny..."
 "The divine plan of happiness enables family relationships to be perpetuated beyond the grave."
 "Sacred ordinances and covenants available in holy temples make it possible for individuals to return to the presence of God and for families to be united eternally."
"We affirm the sanctity of life and of its importance in God's eternal plan."
 "The family is ordained of God.  Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan."
"Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ."
"Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities."
 "By divine design fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness and are responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families.
"Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children."
"Extended family should lend support where needed."
"We warn that the disintegration of the family will bring upon individuals, communities, and nations the calamities foretold by ancient and modern prophets.  We call upon responsible citizens and officers of government everywhere to promote those measures designed to maintain and strengthen family as the fundamental unit of society."
