Being offended is NOT a choice. Being persecuted is real.

You clearly announced your homophobic bigotry when you included yourself in the “we”of the following quote.

We believe sex outside the bounds of marriage is contrary to Christ’s teachings. Likely your mind now leads to the point that the church does not condone marriage outside of heterosexual relationships, and I see how frustrating that can be.

What a horribly evil, homophobic thing for you to say. Frustrating? Please. Do you take us for fools? It’s not frustrating, it’s bigotry. Bald bigotry.

You absolutely are a homophobic bigot, LaMar Going. That’s not a matter of judgement. It’s a matter of fact.

Your own words define you. They announce you as a homophobic bigot. You can’t shuck and jive around it. Until you abandon the morally disgusting teaching above that you assault us with, you will remain a homophobic bigot.

What you believe is evil and wrong and you need to knock it off.

The LDS Church uses that belief to discriminate against and harm queer people and if you even try to disagree with me about that then I will know you are lying.

I’ve seen too much suffering to buy that shit.

Focus on areas where we don’t conflict? Don’t insult my intelligence and my dignity. While your religious beliefs condemn me, then where we conflict is the only thing that matters. It MUST be the only thing that matters.

We will fight you on that tooth and nail and we will never stop until you and other homophobic bigots like you either lose or are shamed into silence.

What amazes me is that you could come out with such a vilely bigoted statement and then act as if people ought not be offended by it.

Get real.

Homophobia is evil. You are a bigot.
