    Hey guys,

    Always interested in hearing from fellow gay Mormons/ ex-Mormons. Trying to sort out some spiritual stuff you can probably relate to.

    If you're worried about being Mormon and gay, don't worry about it. I've never met a Mormon missionary who wasn't gay. icon_cool.gif

    I was born and raised Mormon. Went to church every Sunday until I was 18. Although out of all the kids I went to school with in Utah and all my uncles and cousins I've never once met a missionary that turned out to be gay, although I'm sure there's at least one I just didn't know about, every one is a little excessive.

    MormonStories.org is a great site for you.

    and their other site called


    Gay Mormon Stories – LDS
    Exploring the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Mormon experience through stories

    I found these sites from links suggested by RJers.

    As someone not raised a Mormon....and having a low opinion of The Church, I thought I'd be mocking you guys.

    Far from it. The Mormon Church is truly FUCKED UP......but something about the culture you guys have developed certainly invites deep self-examination and discovery. At least that's the impression I'm getting after listening to some amazing stories on this site.

    Don't like Mormons much. A Mormon told me I'm black because my race was color cursed by God. He had nothing to say when I proved him biblicly how wrong he was. Such an utterly twisted doctrine/religion. I hope for anyone stuck in this religion that they are able to find a way out of it. And Paul is right, There are a lot of gay Mormons, My first crush was a Mormon. Gosh I have the worst luck sometimes.icon_sad.gif

    I am gay and Mormon. I believe the Church is changing. I am not temple worthy by far, but I still believe. I have read the Book of Mormon and have prayed if it was true. I feel that I have gotten my answer. Yes, there are a ton of Mormons against homosexuality, although I am seeing many families change their views on gays due toward having family members and or friends who are gay and still good people. Church members have stood up for me with in my ward seeing that I am not perfect, but I am loving and have done good in my life.

    I am proud to be Mormon and I know the Church is true. No one knows the fine line of sin and good in God's eyes. I feel he made me this way and there is a purpose for my living. Oddly, I seem to have to speak on the behave of Mormons upon my non Christian gay friends. I will ask anyone who has questions about the Mormon faith, to seek out themselves and read the Book of Mormon. Pray afterwards with all your heart and ask our Heavenly Father if the words are true. The LDS Church is not perfect, because no one single person is.

    Let me help:

    1. The underwear isn't really magic. Really.
    2. You know why Joseph Smith wouldn't let anyone else see the golden plates? Hint: There weren't any.
    3. Caffeine is actually good for you.
    4. The pasta is spelled "m-a-c-a-r-o-n-i". I assume that's what he meant to write. I blame it on 19th-century education.
    5. The whole multiple-spouses thing is really okay. Multiple sex slaves would be better, but I understand people take a dim view of that.
    6. If there were really a Garden of Eden (hint: there wasn't) it surely wouldn't have been on the future site of a Wal-Mart.
    7. You really have to question the overall intelligence of people who walk all the way from upstate New York to the edge of the Great Salt Lake and plop down, declaring it "paradise". Seriously.


    You were wrong about everything you wrote on this.

    Psst. They were run out of town and persecuted all the way there. The desert really was paradise.

    It's not fair to mormon bash.

    No it isn't...some of the kindest, most down-to-earth quality people I have ever known were Mormons. I do not agree with everything the church believes, but clearly they are doing something right

    Mormons are the most well funded gay hate group operating in America today. I don't have a problem with people believing Jesus was an alien, but I have a huge problem with Mormon missionaries. If Romney is elected POTUS, Mormons will be one step closer to fulfilling their objective of turning this country into a theocracy. We live in scary times, when a cult leader is this close to being elected leader of the free world.

    Well those who have had bad experiences with mormons, I'm sorry. But hey I'm doing me. I am a mormon... I love the religion, the people have been the greatest people in my lives. Yes I served an lds mission as well. This whole gay lifestyle is new to me. Haven't had any sexual relationships yet. Just trying to figure things out I guess.

    I became a mormon in 2008 at the tender age of 18. After a year in it (and going through baptisms for the dead, hearing the prophet speak, and getting some blessing which I now can not remember what it was for), I found that there were too many things which I just couldn't agree with. Especially, looking back, with the baptisms for the dead. They can pretty it up, but it still seemed cheap to be baptizing someone who was already dead and had no say in the matter because...Well they are obviously deadicon_confused.gif. That and how the missionaries were pretty vicious about me going on a mission (calling me a failure for not wanting to go which turned out to be the best thing ever for my wallet), plus the sort of elitist sense of entitlement all culminated in me leaving the church. Their concepts on charity and the importance of family were sweet, but in all it was not enough to keep me from leaving the church.

    Mormons are no different then any other religion. They have their good and their bad. The bad I feel in any religion is following it like it is some absolute ideology. The good I see in religions is it provides a sense of morals. Most religions try to help the less fortunate in the world, which is also of value. However, the Mormons are really only out to help their own and everyone else is secondary, sot this is another big failure for them. They also abdicated torture of their members (shock therapy) to turn them from being gay. And they still abdicate unhealthy methods to make the gay un-gay. There are many more things I find unhealthy about the Mormon religion, to numerous to mention, so, I see more that is wrong with this religion then what is right. They do have a nice sounding choir though.

    I used to be mormon.

    A week before I had to go to the temple and get my endowment, as part of my mission calling to Manchester in the U.K., I had a talk with my bishop and told him that I was not going. I remember been so scared of loosing my family, my entire social network, what was left of my sanity and a sense of belonging to an idea and people.

    I came out on the other side bruised, but proud that I had the kahunas to choose a different path, than the one I was foretold. Being a lukewarm on the fence kind of guy, is not a way to live. Life is all about choices, hot or cold.. just keep it real and honest. God will take care of the rest and I'm sure he loves his mohos to bits.
