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.
