    If "gay acceptance" is defined as loving all people, serving them, and looking past any personal characteristics to see a Child of God, then gay acceptance has been quietly and continuously happening for a very a long time in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (and countless other faith traditions) by individuals who strive to model their lives after the Savior.
    If "gay acceptance" is defined as a change in doctrine that permits or promotes sexual intimacy between anyone other than a man and a woman, lawfully married as husband and wife, then gay acceptance will be forever elusive because the Lawgiver Himself will not allow His infinite love for his children to trump His Just and Eternal Laws that bless and empower the obedient.

    Extreme self-righteousness. "...who strive to model their lives after the Savior". "...because the Lawgiver Himself will not allow..."...empower the obedient". Do you consider yourself so imminently qualified? Problem is, your "Savior" is a myth. Your "Lawgiver" is a manmade figment of prejudice. Your "obedience" is to the whims of men. You think like the Taliban. You're prejudiced, proud,...and wrong.

    Feelings are not a sin. We can't always help what we feel. However, it IS a sin to act on these feelings in a manner that is not pleasing to God.
    God loves all His children. But that does not mean He loves what they do.
    We believe that, through the scriptures, and through living prophet and apostles of God, that God has told us that sexual activity is sanctified ONLY to be between a man and a woman who are legally and lawfully wed to each other.

    If they don't agree with the bible then they aren't Christians, Homosexual acts are a sin. They can change the words of their CHURCH all they want too, but nothing will change what God wrote in the bible.

    Why should the church change their views because of this couple's son? That makes no sense. If they don't like the church, then leave. The church should never accept homosexuality though.
