eb925guy saidI'm sorry but this is total bullshit. This family worked hard at ensuring Prop 8 passed denying many Californian the chance to build relationships equal to str8s and they could have cared less what it did to the gay community. They continued the Mormon tradition of beating and bullying gays and preaching how hated they are UNTIL….
suddenly they have a gay little kid of their own. Suddenly it's not all that bad, suddenly I guess God has given them something special, suddenly it's not a choice but their little spirit baby is special. Nope, they can't just pick up and start embracing their new founded love for homosexuals. They damaged a lot of people in their work, I'm NOT giving them a free pass! Just another indication of how f#$ked up that religion is!
We're not sure that it's right to deny anyone the right to enlightenment. Depending on their level of contrition for their prior acts of aggression, we should assess the extent of their current enlightenment. If a gay son has brought them into the light (the rainbow?), then we'd welcome them. But in the spirit, if not the letter, of eb925guy's objection, caution is warranted.
Let's remember also that the LDS has reversed its position previously (to wit on non-Caucasians), so any proponents, particularly from within their ranks, is a positive step toward change, however long it takes.
Also, on the subject of velocity of change,

It's the LSD !!!!!
LSD is light speed compared to LDS in our experience! (And we're not talking psychedelic or tie-die!
