Don_Guerrilla_de_Sodom saidReally? I don't believe it because my local church did their best to make my life a living hell. I was getting beaten up so often that my mother let me leave the church against the threats protests of my father's family. Unfortunately , I was still in an LDS boy scout troop and they tortured me (under my grandfather's direction) for being gay AND leaving the church. I still have scars on my arms and legs from where they would press sharpened burning sticks into my skin.
I would venture to guess you are either lying or delusional. My experience with the church is that the bigger the smile and the kinder the words, the more you are going to literally pay in blood later.
In many way I belive him, as I have experienced acceptance in the truth too. But.............When I gave my letter to my Bishope he did not want to accept it, because I am not active in the gay community. But He was clear there were members of his Counsel who would hold exception to it. When I was to state I am doing nothing to break the law, he said but they are acting on a higher law.
I can not say I was never abused by members of the Priesthood, albeit it, much of it was obtuse, but not all. Nor can I say I never received acceptance either. My 94 year old Mormon grandmother's heart beholds nothing but love for me.
So I have seen and experienced both sides.
