I’m all about love.

You should should see the content of my inbox right now. It’s filled with the cries of suffering and pain of my fellow beautiful, innocent LGBTQ people whom your evil church has wounded and harmed.

I’m all about love. I’m all about putting a stop to the evil homophobic bigots of the LDS Church who destroy lives and rip families apart.

The suffering and pain caused by the despicable homophobic bigotry of the LDS Church is WRONG. I’m going to shine the light of love all over the ugly story in order to fight the evil wrongdoing of the Church you’re a member of and that you support.

Fighting evil and working to end needless suffering and pain is loving.

Wait for my article. One of the biggest pubs on Medium will be distributing it to tens of thousands of people.

I think I may be able to get it published in print in California too after some conversations I had today with some LGBTQ Mormons there who are also fighting the terrible homophobic evil of the official LDS Church.

You started something here. I’m going to be the one who finishes it.

Because I’m filled with the light of fierce love and justice.

I’m all about love.


P.S. At the time of your story, excommunication of gay people was a requirement of the Mormon Church. It isn’t now. Now only sexual activity leads to discipline. Still horrific, any way you slice it. Again, you should see the stories filling up my inbox. I have testimony after testimony of ruined lives. People fired from jobs. Rejected by family. Etc, all caused by the official policies of the LDS Church you personally give money to. It’s Mormons and ex Mormons telling me these stories. The stories are real. The LDS Church is led by homophobic bigots and it actively persecutes us every single day. We’re going to fight those evil assholes. You just watch us.

If you had a single loving bone in your body, you’d join us. We’re on the side of the angels.
