    The man who baptized me into the church has struggled his his entire life with same sex attraction. A few years after I was baptized, he couldn’t fight it any more and is now openly gay living with his partner. I do not agree with his lifestyle, but his lifestyle doesn’t change how I feel towards him. We are to love ALL no matter what their choices. It saddens me when other LDS members can’t see the difference, that a person’s choices shouldn’t change the love we feel towards them as individuals. Luckily, my friend’s family respect him and his partner, even though they don’t agree. That same respect is reciprocated by my friend and his partner that attend baptisms, blessings, and so forth. The family has decided to not let his choices effect relationships.

    That is the way Christ would want it. That is the way congregations should be towards other members no matter what choices they make. On the same hand, those who are gay, should also understand that although we love and respect our fellow gay brothers and sisters, we should be respected if we don’t agree with their choices as well.

    Hi Karen,

    Thank you for expressing your thoughts. It is refreshing to know that even though we do not agree regarding each other’s actions that we can like each other.
