is really quite SOOPER (super, btw)!

I am a fandy

of this guy Andy

He stood up for the Mormon Church

when a certain famous Reverend was being kinda a jerk..

Anderson’s classy, smart, and occasionally witty

And his blue eyes are oh so pretty

Yes I’m aware that he is gay

So don’t think I’m trying to get him to sway

his choice or anything, I just think

with eyes like ours, we should hardly ever blink!

*Click on that above link and watch a great journalist be classy and respectful, but still call someone out who is completely wrong!

*It all comes back to “The Yellow Wallpaper.”

It. Gets. Better.

Just watch it, okay? 🙂

(and don’t say you don’t have 10 minutes; You ARE reading this blog, after all!)

In April 2012 I attended a seminar put on by the Sociology department at BYU concerning these same issues.  It wasn’t about marriage/ legal stuff at all.  It was just about what it is like to be gay/ lesbian/ bisexual, but still abide by the laws of God and the precepts of the Honor Code.

There is LOTS to say about the seminar, and I hate to try to “sum up” an event that was very complex, very classy, and very important.  But for now I’ll simply express that I was incredibly inspired by the bravery of not only the 4 panel members (who each told his/her individual story with honesty, tact, and vulnerability), but also by everyone who in any way experiences same-gender attraction, particularly if they choose to abide by the standards of the LDS Church.

Thank you.

God loves you.

I do too.
