40 years ago today - Mar 4, 1983

The Salt Lake Tribune reports on a lawsuit filed in February against the LDS church for $28 million. A father blames his LDS bishop for contributing to his sixteen-year-old son's suicide for counseling his son "that masturbation is a sin... and being a normal adolescent in the puberty state, KIP ELIASON became increasingly less able to reconcile his sexual desires with the strict doctrines of the said LDS Church. He became filled with self-hate."
