Some people believe that ALL words are equal. However, they fail to realize that ideas are formed from the mental boundaries that contrasting words create. Ideas rule the world.....people implement them ! Which ideas do YOU CHOOSE ...and...how will YOU APPLY them for good or evil ? !

What an excellent, informative and perhaps life changing article. I was often made to feel guilty about my LDS view of marriage, because it would hurt others. I forgot the best advice I ever heard: "Don't tell others they are wrong, just tell them, with all sincerity, how much you love what you know and practice. No one can argue with a testimony" Thanks for the article.

Well shared - I particularly appreciated your personal experience in the Prop 8 rally and its aftermath - great model of taking a moral stand with great compassion and charity for all.

Tough to do in an invective-filled world where civil interaction seems to be declining.

Thank you for this article. I also appreciate your work and labors in protecting traditional marriage. I haven't had cable for many years and recently subscribed. I can't believe how many programs are geared towards homosexuals. Needless to say, my home will once again be cable free. Keep fighting the good fight and know that there are many that stand with you.
