This should be read by everybody. A BYU Student comes out, first to himself, then to others. The best part? He video taped many of their reactions. Ha! (They were all positive.) I hope he puts ads up on his youtube channel, because he'll probably be getting hits on that video until the end of time! He still believes in the church, and so believes very strongly that a life of celibacy is what he is called to. As his bishop said to him, "that sucks," but he seems to be quite okay with it and his testimony remains intact.
Oh that all coming out stories could be as positive in the LDS community.
My personal beliefs on the subject of homosexuality and gay marriage have not changed substantially from four years ago, though during that time I'd like to think I've become more compassionate in actually articulating them. My friend Devan would probably tell you stories about how dumb I was at articulating my points back when we were in school together (there are a few statements I said to him that I'd like to take back), and my old roommate David can probably tell you that I've done better since then. Both are gay Mormons. I detail my personal beliefs here, with further readings here (though not all of the links work now), and an interesting argument alluded to in the first post here. You'll also notice that nobody really answered my question in the first post. So, if anybody wants to go back and actually answer the question, that would be great.
In case you missed it, here's the official church website on this subject, the official parts of which I whole-heartedly endorse. (Not everybody on it speaks for the church, and I find it fascinating and encouraging that they included voices that speak things not perfectly in harmony with the church's positions in this matter.)
