Throughout the late s and s, it was a common LDS Church practice to excommunicate individuals who identified as gay, without distinguishing between attraction and behavior. An influential book by Spencer W. Kimball LDS Church President, , entitled The Miracle of Forgiveness , counseled individuals with "same-sex attraction" that they could overcome same-sex oriented sexuality through faithful living. Because of the strong emphasis in Mormon theology on marriage of a man and a woman as a requirement for "exaltation" in Heaven, it was common for LDS leaders to encourage members who confessed feelings of "same-sex attraction" to ignore their feelings and marry a member of the opposite sex based on the belief that this would overcome homosexuality. In the s and s, Affirmation increasingly became an organization for ex-Mormons.
