The trouble they see is not just an America where general support for gay marriage will have driven a wedge between churches and the world, but between churches themselves.

find it ironic that the "Mormon supporting the gay community" chooses to ignore the amicus brief her cult just filed along with the reasons behind it and focus her "sadness on me.
As a member, please explain why ur quorum wants to make their bigotry even more official than it already is..u do realize the "softer stance" website is there to hoodwink sheep like u, right? They are still the same old homophobes they've always been.
my point is....... You don't really give a crap about the gay community. Your problem is with Mormonism and you will use any means necessary to.further your agenda. Why do you have nothing to say to the various members of other faiths here about their unchristian attitudes toward the gay community ? Instead of trying to voice your opinion on the LGBT community you are using the forum to once again talk about Mormonism. Your biggest problem is you can't see people as individuals. You group everyone. Even you knowing how much I love the gay community, you can't look past my faith. It shows how shallow you are.

That maybe true. Traditional marriage i.e. man and woman is the best place to raise children. It is the gold standard.
Right......that's why kids end up in foster care systems!!!

No, it isn't the "Gold standard" or the "God standard". The "God standard" was polygamy.

When it comes to Love, whether loving or being loved, gender is utterly irrelevant.
It's not because of being without a mom and dad that children will always lack,.. it's because of not having been loved.

It's not the "gold standard". There are many heterosexual fuquedup marriages, that shouldn't have been married in the first place, shouldn't be having children or come in contact with kids. Besides, there are many couples who get married with the full intentions of NOT having children. Your religious reasons for heterosexual marriage fails.

Ur point is a lie. Ur leaders have stepped in it again and somehow you've twisted it in ur head to ignore what they do and say ignorant and baseless lies about me. It shows how shallow u really are. Do u agree with what they've done? Do u know why they did it? How about discussing that instead of continuously attacking me because I brought it up?

We'll have to wait to hear from her, but if you posted everything the Pope said and directed it at me for comment, I would be annoyed with you.
Thanks Tony, I appreciate that you are open to what others have to say. Nomo and I quite frankly annoy each other often. I was annoyed that with everything said by some of the "christians" and I use the term loosely over the past few days, that she had no rebuttal for them. Instead she post a link about Mormonism. I understand fully that Mormonism as a whole certainly does not fight for the gay community. However that is not my stance and there are others who feel the same as me. I have close family members who are gay, I love them. I fight for them. I do at times take her comments as a personal attack, but there is a reason I do. She does not see people as individuals. Mormons in her eyes are no better than spawns of satan. She throws around things like ms suzy sunshine, or molly. Yes I am Mormon, but I also love and care about the gay community. It tends to piss me off a tad when someone dismisses a person based on religion. In my eyes it makes you no better than the bigots you claim to be fighting against.

How many discussions have we had where I have encouraged u to stand up and change things from within? Do U have any idea? How many times have I offered support to u to speak against their dangerous policies? And what do u say in return? Personal insults and silly flippant replies. Talking out of both sides of ur mouth is not productive, it just makes u feel good.

No, not in and of itself.

It's about the character of those parents. The love they show their children, The time they share. The care they take. The sacrifices they make. The joy they feel.

And gender does NOT create that character.

NO gay couple anywhere is a threat to straight couples and their kids.

lol...and that statement is really humorous when you loathe 'probably' 80% of all those in these threads. You find more reasons to speak as much slanderous vile garbage as your dark mentality can muster up to think of to say. You do it in an 'attempt' to wound the emotional feelings of your verbal victims. You are the explicit example of a pathetic cyberbully.

Cyberbullying "involves the use of information and communication technologies to support deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior...
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyberbully

But as I stated, you attempt to be one. You're quite pathetic at it. Listening to your immature rants is like being on a school play ground at recess, having to listen to that one kid doing his darnedest to appear as a bully who just seems to have nothing but negative, vile, dark filthy things to say instead of saying something good or worth listening to. Always made you wonder what was happening at their home that created such a pathetic mad at the world soul. Oh well, some things remain a mystery, even to people like yourself. Hope you get it figured out someday dude. Not everyone is against you :)

lmao!!!! What you have encouraged me to do is leave my faith. When have you EVER offered support. Never. Thats when. You can spin that bull all you want, but we both know thats not true. Your answer is leaving my faith, and how many times have I said to you that my very open support of the gay community can help a kid who knows they can come to me when they can't go to anyone else. When they are afraid of the bishop, their parents. I can do more inside the church than out. You know my personal stories . I will continue to be the voice of reason for desperate kids.

Ur quorum actively fights to strip those rights. They are trying to influence the court as we speak. Do u condemn them for it? Or me for posting the info?Tell me, do u still believe "marriage is between a man and a woman"? How about the idea that being gay is an "affliction?" I applaud any changes u have made within yourself and realize it is a difficult process(with all the bigotry uve been fed) but it wasn't that long ago these were your standard replies.
