    Dear Carolyn,

    Thank you for sharing your story in the video vignettes. It takes a brave person to share her life so openly. I’m sorry you had to experience the loss of friendships upon being excommunicated. I cannot imagine abandoning any friend unless they asked me personally to get lost, but I can imagine the loss you must have felt from these individuals you called friends.

    I find it increasingly difficult to desire being at church because we as a church have moved away as a whole from love to judgement. Perhaps most religions have. I find myself closer to Father and the Spirit when I am alone in the woods hiking.

    God bless you and may you always have peace.

    Namaste,
    Deborah

    How tragic, I can really sense that you are a good person, and I am so sorry for what you have been through. I am not gay, but am LDS. I support proposition 8, but not because I want to alienate or make anyone feel bad, but because I believe marriage is not just about love or acceptance, but a declaration to bear children and raise them with the attributes of parents from both genders.

    Thank you for speaking and helping me understand a little better.
