LDS Leadership Calls for Right to Discriminate Under Guise of “Religious Freedom”



I am trying hard to disassociate from my old religion. It is really difficult for me to do, however, because the Mormon Church has taken such a spotlight role in the anti-LGBT movement. So here I am, with two identities I had no choice in which are in constant turmoil with each other. I was devoted to my religion for the first 25 years of my life. I was born into it. I am also gay, and always have been. Its hard to move on when the organization that I was devoted to for so long has been so insistent on striping me of dignity. First, by trying to prevent me from the right to marry...

You're really good at blowing smoke. It's true, you who leave the church just can't leave it alone. Your anti Lds "rhetoric" makes me really angry. You already resigned your membership, stop beating against the church. Go live your life and leave us alone. You beat against what I love, I'll beat against you and what you love. Leave the church alone. You probably talked anti church on your mission. Scum.

You're such a drama queen. Poor little boy who makes no sense at all, just repeats what every other anti nut says. Drama queen.

Trys- Did you even read the entire post? Because this is only part of the first paragraph and yet you have made your comment here instead of on the full-body text. Its strange to me that you call me "a little boy" in the same breath as your unintelligent name calling and assumptions about my time as a missionary.

It is the Mormon Church, sir, who can't seem to keep their hands off my rights as a citizen of this country. First, by fighting against my right to marry and have a recognized and protected family of my own. Second, by asking to expand exemptions to non-discrimination laws so that doctors, bakers, and others can deny me service simply because I am gay and they don't like that. I would gladly like to leave the church alone... but as long as it insists on meddling in my human rights, it has chosen to enter a battle it will not win, and from which I will not run.
