    Being gay, I am no longer a member. I know it sounds strange to many of you, but I still love the people that taught me every good thing I know! So, I have been reading the faith section.
    I just want to say that one of the things I loved so much was going to the temple and I have always been grateful for those experiences. I hope people don't mind me sharing a thought or two.
    I think the temple was special to me because it was built and dedicated for the purpose of gaining eternal life and it was a place where you strive to be the very best you can! I think we all need something truly sacred and the temples are sacred. It is important! I am not trying to offend. I know that being gay just doesn't go along with talking about the temple! But, I am a part of a family. A huge family that I love them. Why shouldn't I care!
    Oh well, I probably shouldn't say anything. How awkward! for me it is sad because ... I can't even share how I feel!
