    There you go. You can be a Bona Fide Homosexual, and a Mormon too. Go to the Temple so forth.

    But you have other choices too. You can live a lie, or even leave the church.

    I'm also a gay Mormon but i don't plan on being celibate if that means I have to leave the church then too bad. but i don't think he should be judged for his choice after all a lot of gay men sleep around and they aren't judged so leave him alone plus he may find another celibate guy and they may be happy. Hope it works out for him.

    The video was funny I thought, but not quite what I was expecting. I think videos like that give a false impression of Mormonism. While The church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints is a beautiful religion their official stance towards homosexuality is that it is a sin whether your actively engaging in sex or not. Sadly I was excommunicated because of my feelings towards men so I have to scoff a little when I hear people say they are gay mormons, no offense to my fellow "gay Mormons" of course

    I think hes trying just a bit too much to come across as cheery and energetic, but overall I do think he's a likable character. Does he have any other videos?

    Why would he need to tell anyone that he is gay? Satellites could detect that.

    I suppose we could blame capitalism for creating spaces in which wankers can embarrass themselves. Or we could blame the ever-falling educational standards in our fair nation for the lack of critical thinking skills that would prevent adherence to a cult.

    Well it's not quite fair to call the church a cult, being as cults are run by nutjob extremists and the LDS are a respectable religion. In my experiences with the church not once have thy tried making me give away possessions or drink funny coolade lmao.

    Rudolphe, Mormonism is the ur-American cult . . . and it is more than fair to call a con artist's vehicle the cult that it really is.

    Joseph Smith was a quintessential con artist and nutjob extremist, and his so-called religion is a bizarre joke.

    Religion is, by definition, false, and a belief in the unbelievable, whatever false belief system it is.

    A Davey Wavey who is actually secure. Nothing more sexy than a big brain (and did you hear his Chinese)? Seriously. Jimmy didn't have to take off his shirt to get attention. And as for the tweet he received, I hope he knows that he IS, in fact, a role model for literally millions, thanks to social media and his indefatigable spirit. I'll buy fries next time you're in SLC to make up for the one you dropped. Very proud of Jimmy. He will be a huge success in life. In fact, he already is.

    I am not a Mormon-hater, but I have met an unfair share of gay Mormons damaged by the treatment they received from their religion. In other words, I would find it very easy to hate the Mormon Church and its inhuman policies.

    Because, let's face it, what the Mormon Church does to "homosexuals" is a policy, not belief.

    This guy bothers me because he reminds me of someone long ago. You see, my first crush was a Mormon guy and they taught him lies to believe that Black people are cursed descendants of Cain. On top of that he broke my poor little youthful naive heart. So Gay + Mormon equals stupid bad memory for me. And this guy's video is quirky, cheery and all role-modelish to the point of Glee. He also comes off a bit annoying like he lives in Wonderland while many guys go though extreme hardships, get kicked out, or are separated from their families just for coming out while trying to continue being religious. icon_rolleyes.gif

    And lets not even talk about other countries.

    The LDS Church spent thousands of dollars trying to brainwash me "reparative therapy" style. For years they paid a therapist $80 hr to convince me that I wasn't gay, being gay isn't real, and that I should marry a woman and start a family. They also tried to lie about the amount of money they spent on California's prop 8 campaign, and when confronted about it via lawsuit they dismissed it as "a mistake." They underreported by nearly 200k. They also have tax exempt status, but have been using their members to further their anti-gay political agenda.
    Oh, and women were only allowed to pray in their world wide general assembly meetings.......2 MONTHS AGO. Yep, until 2 months ago, 2013, women were not allowed to pray in General Conference. Only men. The organization is a white man's wet dream. Only he better hope that wet dream isn't about another man, or he's going to hell.

    Sorry to hear that. Hopefully you were able to rectify all the confusing/ contradicting messages into one that works for you and allows you to live your life happy, in whatever way that may be. I grew up as a Catholic, but have distanced myself from organised religion due to the hypocrisy and absurdity that I found. I really don't fit in with any religion, just that I enjoy the idea of a better place after death, and sincerely hope that those I know who have passed are there waiting for me. I just try and be a good person in life and hope thats enough.
