I know this is off topic, but many of you have written me about LDS member Josh Weed coming out of the closet.  Here are my thoughts…  What are yours?

    I have one big concern about Josh coming out of the closet with this Unicorn Club as he states clearly and he writes clearly in #8 that there is no incorrect path for gay religious to live out their lives, although Josh choose to marry. According to God there is only one straight narrow path if you know what I mean. The Weed’s will be harming many gay and homosexuals if they don’t understand that clearly sex was meant only in marriage with a man and woman. Outside of God’s plan for marriage sex is very destructive, including fortification, polygamy etc… I praise God Josh has controlled his same sex attraction feelings and has married, but telling others there is no incorrect path for gay religious to live, is going to harm his family and the world. May God bless Josh and his wife to guide others to the one and only narrow path paved by God.

      He does not say “there is no incorrect path.” He says he will not judge someone;s path as being incorrect. That basically means he will be nice to everyone. It does not mean every decision is right.

    This was a well written article. I have no problem with other individuals (our brothers and sisters) who accept or embrace certain lifestyles that I believe to be misguided, sinful or wrong. Also, I have no problem extending and loving these individuals for being part of the human family. The Church teaches:

    “WE, THE FIRST PRESIDENCY and the Council of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, solemnly proclaim that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children.

    “ALL HUMAN BEINGS—male and female—are created in the image of God. Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny. Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose.”

    The Weed’s are no different than anyone else on this planet. They are tempted just like the rest of us. But to bring one’s struggle and temptation to the forefront in the midst of a feeding media frenzy is courageous, to say the least. We should love all unconditionally as the Lord loves us unconditionally.

    Here is the LDS Church’s official position on Same-sex attraction. It’s quite long. the summary is this: The standards are the same for every member of the Church: No sexual relations of any kind outside of marriage and complete fidelity within. In other words: No fornication and No adultery, period, end of story. Someone with Homosexual feelings will not be excommunicated for those feelings any more than a singe or married heterosexual would be excommunicated for being attracted to someone of the opposite sex who is not a spouse. Nor would someone be excommunicated for being angry with someone but would be for committing murder. It’s acting on the feelings which is the key.
