TWO SALT LAKE MEN -- NOW IN THEIR 40'S -- HAVE FILED SUIT AGAINST THE L-D-S CHURCH, CLAIMING THEY WERE SEXUALLY ABUSED -- WHILE WORKING ON A MORMON-OWNED PINEAPPLE PLANTATION, IN HAWAII -- A QUARTER-CENTURY AGO. THE LAWSUIT, FILED IN HAWAII, SEEKS UNSPECIFIED MONETARY DAMAGES... A FORMAL APOLOGY FROM THE CHURCH... AND POLICY CHANGES IN HOW THE CHURCH DEALS WITH SEXUAL ABUSE. LDS OFFICIALS SAY THE CHURCH HAS ZERO TOLERANCE FOR SEXUAL ABUSE. THEY ARE NOW REVIEWING THE SPECIFICS OF THE LAWSUIT.
