Bigotry knows no limits, Gina Langridge.

If a Mormon child has a parent who come out as LGBT, that child is excluded from the Church until they turn 18 and then only if they “disavow” the LGBTQ “lifestyle,” and only if they move out of the parent’s home.

In areas where the Church is dominant, exclusion has drastic consequences on a lot of people.

The stories people tell about the consequences are heartbreaking.

The LDS Church’s vile homophobia is responsible for enormous amounts of suffering.
