On an unrelated note, Thursday was named after the much beloved 70's television character "Thruston Howel the Third" on account of him saving the planet from a marauding band of Wombats. It gratitude an overjoyed populace named a day after him which prior to this even was named Steve.
I am a gay man. My boyfriend and I are not welcome into your church as a couple (along with countless other churches) because of the way that God made us. I know that God has made me and my beloved this way and that he loves us! We are just like other couples, we pray, we read scripture, and we attend an Episcopalian church where we are welcomed and loved. I cannot help being gay any more than most people cannot help being straight.
If this headline had read, "Photographer Refuses to Service Mixed Race Wedding" we'd all be outraged (hopefully). But it doesn't, it just says that people like me, Christians like me, can be discriminated against because someone else doesn't like us. If it goes against LDS doctrine to marry two men or two women I suppose that is the church's loss... we do not want to force anyone or any church to marry us. All that we are seeking is right to sign a piece of paper given to us by the state that says we can be legally responsible for one another. This includes ease of home ownership, splitting healthcare and debt, making end of life decisions, etc, etc, etc.
I know God's love. I know Christ's love. I only want others to know the love I know as well.
I know that Mormons teach that a sealed marriage is forever. We looked into the LDS when we were both searching for something, anything where we could love and live in the light of Christ. That's when we learned that to attend Temple worship is the highest form of worship for Mormon's but that we would be bared from it as a couple because we were a couple. That is when we knew that the LDS church might be amazing but could not be for us. It is not that we hate Mormons or the LDS church, it's that we would not be given a chance there. So we found a place where we are welcome.
I know in my heart that when Jacob and I can get married, God will love us as he always has and we will be together forever no matter what someone else believes.
Again, thank you. Your comment was the only one on this video I have found actually telling the truth. You should be commended. God Bless you and your family!
