Yeah, @Chris and I both had a really intersting discussion on Facebook about the LGBTQ policy and the church's relationship as a whole with LGBTQ members. I posted support for LGBTQ members who felt offended by a Dallin H. Oaks talk. I didn't say anything negative about Oaks or the church. Just offered my support to those who felt offended. Little did I know that would open the flood gates to such a passionate discussion. Or maybe I did and I was looking to stir the pot, lol.
Anyways, I do think that what matters most is that we listen to each other's concerns and make people feel like their feelings and opinions matter even if they differ from ours. As for the church's policy towards LGBTQ famlies, I didn't see much good come from it. It just seemed to drive a further wedge between the church and that community. I should add, I'm saying that as one who sustains the leadership of the church. It's a tricky line to walk as an active member, but I feel it can be done.
