    But this region is fairly conservative and not too much around here. Not very particular, would like to find something in the four corners area (Utah, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico).

    Or Albuquerque.

    It's difficult to answer this question since it's hard to tell what your looking for.
    A Christian church?
    Another religion?
    A secular organization?
    A social organization?
    A business collective?
    A charity?
    Does being gay have to be mentioned as part of the charter/manifesto/policy etc. of the organization?

    I would also explore the Episcopal church. Many are very open minded and flexible. "Integrity" is a gay & lesbian organization and while I don't know if there is a chapter in the 4 corners area, I think its something you should check out for sure.

    Try the United Church of Christ. A loving, mainstream Christian denomination that has been welcoming to gay and lesbian members, clergy and marriages for decades.

    I think you have to be inbred or somehow a part of the Phelps family in order to become a member of Westboro.

    LMAO, dude for real, i was shocked to see that they all look really similar and the majority of them are family.

    I have seen so many interviews and its clear they are brainwashed, I mean even the kids that are disowned say that the father use to beat them and really just formed a cult.

    Try Metropolitan Community Church (MCC) as there's probably a branch somewhere within driving distance. Also, I just found out about a great organization called Faith In America, at...

    http://www.faithinamerica.info

    They are at the forefront of seeing to it that Gays and Lesbians are granted equal rights to marry, and other political fights in favor of Gay rights.

    Good luck to you!
