    I share many of your hopes, views and desire on this issue, Clark. I think the church is learning very, very slowly how it is wrong on this issue. It rocks the very core of the modern church’s narrow perspective of what can make a family, and that will make it take a long, long time to change.

    I support you in your choice to be honest about who you are and be courageous in confronting the belief system you hold dear where it does not seem right to you. I try to do that as well by supporting the cause of equal rights for everyone in America (including the Mormon church), whether they are gay, straight, bisexual, trans-gender, Jewish, Atheist, Mormon, Muslim, male, female, young, old, poor, rich, black, white, yellow, brown, etc.

    Just because someone is different in what gender they love, whether they love someone of a different race, whether they love a religion that is different than ours, that doesn’t mean their love isn’t valid and beautiful. All such love should should be supported, protected, nurtured and celebrated. Not threatened, prevented, and misunderstood just because someone feels threatened by it.

    Clark,

    Thanks for being brave and sharing your message.

    I am a little confused about what’s going on today. You said that circumstances helped form your gender orientation, yet many others say they were born the way they are. I was wondering if you feel that society is encouraging people with homosexual tendencies to be that way permanently.

    Thanks for your insight.

    Dan
