Re: LDS Church Applauds Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer Concert.

What's the difference between "gay" and "lesbian"? I'm guessing "gay" is for "homosexual guy" and "lesbian" is a homosexual woman, but if a biological gay guy identifies as a woman, wouldn't that make him a lesbian who's attracted to men, and therefore straight? This is all so confusing...

Re: What ordinance qualifies us for entrance into the Celestial Kingdom?

I've wondered a lot about that, too. If the only thing keeping someone from the highest sub-degree of the Celestial Kingdom is being sealed to a spouse, I can't imagine there being many people in the lesser degrees. It'd be like passing all the requirements off for your Eagle Scout award, finishing ...

Re: What ordinance qualifies us for entrance into the Celestial Kingdom?

So how would you say one gets qualified for a Celestial resurrection? When God Himself tells you that you are: Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon ...

Re: Who's watching the eclipse today?

Here in Austin TX we got about 70% occlusion.

Another group near us was really well-prepared, even had donuts and music going. The te...

Lesbian and Mormon: Putting it All on the Altar

I hope everyone who has participated or just lurked on the LGBTW discussions we've been having here recently will watch this video about this lesbian couple's journey to (and back to) Christ. This is putting it all on the altar. I can only imagine the faith it required to do what they did. It's a 17...

But I would also not be surprised if this concert itself ends up supporting gay relationships, sex and marraige.
If the proceeds are going to GLAAD like they said, then it most certainly is. GLAAD is diametrically opposed to the church on homosexuality.

I think is important to remember it is a sin to be a pedophile, it is not a sin to have same gender attraction. But is it a sin to be sexually attracted to children? The church is using the term "gay" to mean same gender attraction, meaning that you can call yourself gay, even though you're not sex...
