How does a Mormon feel about being Gay?

I first off want to say "I love You" to all of my family and friends that are Gay.  You know how I feel about you, you know that I love you, and you know that I have always and will always love you just as you are.  For those of you reading this and are wondering what Mormon's think about people who are Gay, I can't say that I speak for every Latter-Day Saint (Mormon).  All I can talk about is how I feel, and how I believe people should act.  

One of my best friends that I have known since I was 5 years old is a Lesbian.  She is in a same sex relationship with a girl who is amazing and treats her like a Queen.  She treats her like I have always hoped she would be treated.  She is in a loving, caring, real relationship, and that couldn't make me happier.  I love her with all my heart, and all I have ever wanted for her is to be happy.  All I have ever wanted is for her to experience the same loving relationship that I feel with my sweet husband.  I'm so thrilled that she has found someone who makes her smile, laugh, and feel whole.  I don't care if it is a man or woman, all I want is for her to feel loved.  She has that, and that makes me happy.

If you are wondering how you should treat someone who is Gay I'll put it simply.  You should love them unconditionally.  You should love them just as much as anyone.  In fact, you should love them as much as you would someone who is straight.  Christ taught us to "Love One Another".  It is the 2nd greatest commandment given to men.  There is your answer given straight from God.  You love them, just as he would.

I could say so much more, but I wanted to send you to a link of a man who says it so much better than me.  He is a Gay Mormon man, who is married to a woman.  He talks about his loving, and real relationship, and what it is like to be a Gay Mormon.  Please click here to read all about Josh Weed.
