"Vice is a monster of so frightful mien,
As to be hated needs but to be seen;
Yet seen too oft, familiar with her face,
We first endure, then pity, then embrace."

Alexander Pope - An Essay on Man

What mankind thinks the Lord met and what He really means could be two different things.
Mankind is rewriting scripture to fit social change and by-pass sin.

Gay people have the right to be as miserable as everybody else.

I was surprised to read this endorsement of "continuing revelation." Too bad he didn't identify the source of that revelation. He does go on to say that the congregants have the right to decide what the scriptures mean. Perhaps it would be a good idea to decide between "revelation" and public opinion.

I understand vice is difficult but keep working your desire to remove other right to choose is a vice you can overcome someday. good luck.

Sorry Charlie!

@ Linus: When the LDS Church receives revelation, who are they receiving it from?

How do you know if man is simply rewriting scripture if as you suggest you cannot be certain what his scriptures mean? Why should I believe your version anymore then any other man? Just because you believe you have the one true interpretation means nothing given your reasoning above.

Since only people can receive "revelations" how do we know that their "revelations" are anything more then the influence of those around them to make certain decisions. Do you have any objective, physical evidence that proves that "revelations" come from anywhere other then the hearts and minds of men (also read as opinions).

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 2Pet 1:21-22

I'm not Gay, so I accept the scriptures as written to be the Lords final word...

What a pathetic set of comments.

how can you be certain that it is the word of god given your reasoning? gay or straight is irrelevant.

Only one way to know for sure God's will: ask him humbly with real intent and a sincere heart. He answers prayers.
