When you realize that Brigham Young's edict to his church was to "put to death" anyone who committed a homosexual act or slept with a black person, and made the edict "eternal," I think you might better appreciate the defensive and offensive nature of the LGBT community.
Oh, I do, I do.
Given the following:
-- Brigham Young died in 1877
-- I personally know black Mormons
-- I personally know interracial Mormon couples with children
-- I have never been threatened with death or even had an attempt made on my life by the numerous Mormons I know
it becomes obvious that you are allowed to take a defensive and offensive view towards a group of people based on the words and behavior of someone who died over a century ago that said group is quite obviously not following or caring much about today.
In that case, I hereby give license to all people who would take a defensive and offensive view towards the gay community to do so, given that I can quote Harry Hay saying publicly that gays should support and include NAMBLA and other exploiters of children as part of the gay community.
