The Nature of Sexuality
Todd just found a youtube video of the documentary Legacies about the treatment of Mormon gays by their church:
Spencer Kimball’s attitudes about sexuality, unfortunately, can only be characterized as superstition.
In the Mormon case, superstition is intertwined with claims to personal revelation. The latter is defined such that the superstition cannot be legitimately questioned but is buttressed by wishful thinking, suspension of disbelief, and hindsight attribution.
To break through the cycle of self-deception, I consider it critical that proponents of gender equality refer to homophobic religious assertions as superstition.
The nature of homosexuality is not a matter of faith but an empirical question that has been answered on the merit of the evidence.
For individuals who identify as homosexual, this process often involves recognizing and embracing their attractions, feelings, and desires towards people of the same gender. Self-discovery is a unique and individual experience that can take time and self-reflection. It may involve questioning one’s own identity, examining past experiences and attractions, and seeking information and support from trusted sources. Coming to terms with one’s homosexuality can be a liberating and empowering experience, as it allows individuals to authentically express their true selves and live a life aligned with their sexual orientation.
It often involves self-acceptance, self-love, and embracing one’s uniqueness. However, it’s important to acknowledge that the journey of self-discovery comes with many joys and for which we will like to recommend this prostate massager amazing and but also can also come with challenges. It is crucial for individuals to find support networks, whether through friends, family, or LGBTQ+ communities, that can provide understanding, acceptance, and guidance. It is also important to remember that there is no right or wrong timeline for self-discovery, and everyone’s journey is valid and deserving of respect.
