Here's a response I sent this morning to the Salt Lake Tribune:
Regarding Carol Lynn Pearson's opinion "We can change history for gay LDS," I agree that we should certainly intervene whenever possible to help people avoid the awful choice of suicide. But her implication for Mormons seems to be, "We must sanction individuals indulging in sodomy without guilt or consequence, otherwise they're going to commit suicide and their deaths will be on our heads." That sounds like black mail to me, and I don't accept it.
Within Mormonism, we're all responsible for upholding the standards of the gospel. I consider it our responsibility to accept, love, and fellowship same-sex-attracted people who want to work on resisting their temptation and staying in harmony with Mormonism. However, we're under no obligation, moral or otherwise, to embrace those who expect Mormons to repent of our alleged bigotry and change the doctrine and commandments to accommodate sodomy.
UPDATE: The Tribune accepted this letter for publication, and it should appear this week. I believe the person who handles the letters at the Tribune deals with same-sex attraction, so I admire him for accepting a letter with some pretty charged language.
