2. Actually being gay and Mormon is a topic that needs exposure

And exposing people who deny the reality of gay Mormon men and women are a great way to start a conversation on this issue.

I'm a bit of a mixed mind as to whether this is the right forum for it, (by a national cable TV) but better talked about than hidden from view.

There are many gay former Mormons, and some gay folk that still consider themselves part of that faith, although the church probably doesn't want to be associated with them. I would hope this show gives us non-Mormons and gay folks some exposure to gay folks who grew up in the faith and have now made courageous strides in coming out as gay.

Does anyone who reads posts on this forum actually think "faith" in some god can make a person straight?
Or maybe even make them bisexual, and committed to a heterosexual marriage?

I'm sorry, I'm not a good person to be expert on the topic of religion, but I doubt religion has power other than self-delusion when it comes to sexual issues. Being gay should be as respected by religions as being red-headed or being a different skin color. No, being gay is not the same as the genes as being a red-head are.. but there's something there, we are beginning to find out what it is, it's not just nurture, not environment over genes, it's something, and we are not yet on top of the science, and we should not try to think religion has anything at all to do with it, other than being a tool to repress or confuse this issues.

I'm not saying I'm an expert on this stuff, but I'm sure religion is more often NOT helping people be themselves when it comes to sexual orientation. Just my views on the matter. No thanks, religion, don't even bother to weigh-in here, your various theories and teachings don't help gay folks out, unless you just want to apply ONLY that Golden Rule. "Do unto others..." That rule!

3. My gay grandson was in a 7 year relationship

with a gay Mormon. They spent more time with his partner's family than with us, although at first they kept their relationship secret from his parents. At some point the partner told them he was gay and they refused to acknowledge what he said. The parents preferred to believe they were just very good friends and included my grandson in their family dinners, vacations, Christmas gifting, etc.

6. I don't think that the problem here.

I was mortified watching that video. Yes I'm going to say it, it's BULLSHIT!

As to your question it's what the men are saying.
