Dear Elder Uchtdorf,
The LGBT would like to replace freedom of religion provisions in the US. Constitution with freedom from religion. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has signed a number of friend-of-the-court briefs in support of discrimination against homosexuals with the U.S. Supreme Court: same-sex marriage case (April 2015), transgender bathroom case (Feb. 2017), Jack Phillips (Colorado Baker case Sept. 2017) not to mention Proposition 8 in California.
When I see the church end such discrimination and a “gay float” pushing homosexuality in the Days of ’47 Parade and open homosexuals being baptized into the church, I will know the prophet is wearing the same contact lens prescription as you.
I too have love for my LGBT brothers and sisters (and sister and brother wannabes), but it is not the kind of love they are looking for; it is a tough love encouraging repentance for their own eternal welfare and that of our posterity.
