To both Bundy 6 pak and Alton Clan,
I am not searching for truth's...I found them in the church. My observation of members of the church here in NYC and many of my own cousins and relatives (who have given their support for my way of thinking) is that you can be an active member of the church and disagree with an action being taken. The leaders of our church - though prophets and apostles - are human as well.
Do not assume you know me...or that your way of thinking is ideal for me. You do not know where I came from...you do not understand my heart...you have not had to deal with my problems or issues in life...and you will not see death the same way.
The gospel of Jesus Christ...the gospel I hold dear to my heart...is not a gospel of hatred or hard feelings...or a gospel that should ever make one feel less than the very best. If it is...than we have all been fooled. Your thoughts and actions sadly have come across somewhat aggressive yourself...
I write on my blog to express to others my feelings....I am not searching...do not assume that...I honestly am suprised how so many people felt that...and people who obviously have never lived outside the community of the mormon church.
Do you want to know my honest feelings....I believe the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to be True....but the people of the church and the community of the church... are some of the most hateful and hurtful people I have ever met - take it from someone who has lived both on the inside of that community and out.
First take a look at how you are perceived...don't assume that the way you present yourself is the most helpful...because honestly....it is not.
To all...my heart reaches out...I feel the pain that it is causing both the members of the church and to those who are gay. It hurts for both. Neither truly listening to the other...both simply just throwing up arms. Seriously... cant we all play on the field like civil children.
I wish you all the best....your friend,
