Entertainer and recording artist Donny Osmond

Donny Osmond weighs in on gay marriage.

There are many gay individuals that are members of our church. I know many of them. In fact, some of my best friends are gay. You ask how I react regarding their marriages. Well, I do support our Church leaders who say that we can accept those with gay tendencies in our church as long as they do not act upon their temptations. Everyone has tenancies to succumb to temptation, but we all have the same standard given to us by our Father in Heaven. Whether we may be tempted to be immoral with members of our own sex or of the opposite sex, we are expected to live chaste lives. This is very well explained not only in the Book of Mormon, but in the Bible as well.

You see, the whole beauty of God’s plan is that we all have our free agency to live our lives the way we want to live them. Personally, I believe in the words stated above and that they came from a living prophet, so I abide by them.

We all determine for ourselves what is right and what is not right for our own lives and how we live God’s commandments. I am not a judge and I will never judge anyone for the decisions they make unless they are causing harm to another individual. I love my friends, including my gay friends. We are all God’s children. It is their choice, not mine on how they conduct their lives and choose to live the commandments according to the dictates of their own conscience.

Ok, Donny, Flap understands but the self- righteous Proposition 8 folks will either boycott you now because you are a member of the LDS Church or just because you are a bigoted hater.

Take your pick.

Somehow I do not think your audience will mind one way or the other – but Harrah’s Entertainment (owners of the Las Vegas Flamingo Hotel where Donny and Marie have been performing) who are big contributors to the homosexual lobby might.

And, that would be a shame.

    There are still those among us who “don’t get it, don’t want to get it and let them wallow in their own bigotry. I was born a blond the guy down the street has red hair. Who decided that? Them in the womb – not. I was born a heterosexual, the guy down the street was born gay – who decided that? Them in the womb or duh could it have been something that came with the body? Marriage let them have it if they want it. More divorce lawyers will get more money.

    Donnie is not being a bigot. He is speaking with love for his brother and sisters. Why turn it into something that it’s not? Good job Donnie!

  • Lee Hiramoto

  • hey girl

    Not everyone has to think fudge packing is ok!! God said NO and Donny is just siding with God! I think that is smart! He does get it! If your gay you don’t get It is NOT ok! It destroys families…men and men can’t concieve kids cause God said men and women!!!

    I wonder where the proof is that “God said No”. It is amazing to me how many self-righteous pawns seem to think they know what God’s will is.

    Nice, coming from someone who gets his beliefs from a perverted prophet who wanted to sleep with women other than his wife (s). Not too long ago your church wouldn’t allow blacks. The Lord loves everyone, yes, even you bigamists. Yea, yea, I know, you guys don’t do that anymore. Mainly because it’s illegal.

    Also, the only reason you guys didn’t go on a mission was because your church wanted it’s 10% of all of your earnings–which, at the time, was quite a bit.

    And also, we all know you would love to cheat on your wife. You said yourself, you’re tempted everyday. You don’t because you’re afraid you might go to Mormon Hell. You still want to. You have sinned in your mind and heart. That’s just as bad.

    Yea, you have a gay friend. That’s just down right funny.
