LDS-gay solution
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

In "LDS and gays" (Forum, Dec. 12), Steve Howard is disgusted with the LDS position on gays, "that being gay is a disability the same way being an alcoholic is."

News flash for Steve: Membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is voluntary. It doesn't take a genius to see the unfortunate reality that, like oil and water, gay couples and LDS theology do not mix.

Fortunately, the solution for Steve and his friends is simple: If you do not like LDS religion, find or create a theology that resonates with your core values.

No amount of whining will change an apple into an orange, and persistent pounding will not get a square peg through a round hole.
