Church Halloween Event Bans “Cross-Gender” Costumes

The Jesus Church of the Latter-Day Saints and some members of its members fought back after a flier was sent out for a Halloween party banning guests from wearing cross-gender costumes, according to Utah’s Fox 13.

This LDS  trunk or treat event was where kids could come and trick or treat in the parking lot of one of the religious centers, according to Utah’s Fox 13.

Bishop Dennis Toone defended the guidelines placed on the fliers, according to Fox News.

The flier was created by a women’s group and was given to hundreds of people in the community, according to the family of the Bishop who leads the ward, according to Fox News.

Raquel Smith, a Utah mother, felt that the flier was sending the wrong message to children in the community, according to Fox News.

“I think definitely a child as young as a toddler can understand when a parent says ‘no honey, you can’t be Spiderman or Harry Potter because you’re a girl and that’s a boy.’ I think that immediately tells your child their decisions are wrong,” said Smith, according to Fox News.

Scott, Trotter, a LDS spokesperson, told Fox 13 that the no-mask policy is dictated for church events, however, the no cross-dressing rule is not a policy for the church but rules like this are at the discretion of the church, according to Fox News.

Trotter explained that he was unsure why such language was used on the flier but believes that meant to promote people to dress appropriately, according to Fox News.

One resident told Fox News, that no one should be excluded doing do so would be unfair, according to Fox News.
