More Gays R Us
In case you don’t know, there is quite a bit of pro-gay activist material on the Internet produced by and targeted for LDS people. Here’s an example of the type of thing you can find with the click of a button: “For the Strength of Gay Youth” (23 pages). I kid you not. It’s all about getting kids (12 and up) to experiment sexually. Then there are testimonials from LDS parents of gays proclaiming their support of their children’s choices and lifestyle. And lots more.
Why do we need to know this? Because, crazy as it sounds, they are making headway within the Church membership. Pro-gay attitude is reflected in our local Utah media – newspaper, radio, TV, publishing – supposedly run by staunch LDS people. After what I’ve seen I tend to agree with Allen D. Roberts when he said, "On the whole, Mormon social statistics follow the national patterns, even in such areas as . . . homosexuality . . . , and a host of other categories in which Mormons, by virtue of their religious beliefs, could be expected to differ significantly."
How can this be, you ask? I can only answer that perhaps many people are simply misled. They are good, busy people who have been caught up in the tidal wave of lies being manufactured by our overtolerant, oversexed, politically correct society and are not thinking things through to their logical ends. As a result, they take the low road; it’s much easier to be “compassionate” than to stand for something. Then there are those who are radical revolutionaries, of the type of people Tammy Bruce calls malignant narcissists, deeply damaged. It’s an example of the inmates running the asylum. They want us to think people indulging in homosexuality are victims, harmless as doves, but they conveniently fail to mention the huge roles certain things play in this behavior such as masturbation, pornography, sodomy and other unnatural sex acts, sex paraphernalia, promiscuity, infidelity, chronic health problems, drugs, and a plethora of diseases some of which prove fatal. (If you have been led to believe that the gay people you know are perfectly well-adjusted and healthy, just pick ONE of these items, and see if it rings wholesome or beneficial.)
If they don’t believe in the doctrines (to know the Church’s stand see Dean Byrd’s book, Homosexuality and The Church of Jesus Christ) why don’t these pro-gay activists leave the Church, you wonder? Perhaps because we have made our Church into more of a country club than a holy place for those who desire to repent and come unto Christ. One set of parent activists says on a website that the worst day of their lives was not the day their son “came out” but the day he was excommunicated. They seem to care more about him being known as a member of their club than their child’s physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. After all, excommunication exists not as punishment but to hopefully motivate people to desire to forsake sin and come back into the fold.
What seems especially disturbing is that these LDS gay guys shamelessly tout their missions and BYU educations. (There is a site listing gay BYU alumni.) It doesn’t take rocket science to figure out that they are using their ostensible service to the Lord and their association with the Church’s university to justify their behavior and further their agenda.
While the LDS gay activist community flaunts returned missionary status, exploits suicides within its ranks, lists Church callings, infiltrates LDS media, uses Bruce Bastian’s millions to produce pro-gay propaganda, and recruits vulnerable young people through internet chat rooms, there are those who will do everything they can to expose and counteract this movement in the name of all that is good and all that is holy.
