Thank you for this kind, but direct, response to an issue that keeps coming up despite counsel from inspired leaders that the doctrine of eternal marriage between a man and a woman will never change. As mentioned in the article, I was always taught that the Priesthood would eventually be available to every worthy male. I rejoiced when on my mission, we received word that this blessed day had arrived. In contrast, I have never been taught that marriage would ever divert from the divine union of a man and a woman in the House of the Lord by the appropriate authority. True happiness lies in embracing the truth.
Considering the Church stand on marriage, the Family Proclamation, and our understanding of our Father's plan--has anyone entertained the possibility that same gender attraction is only a mortal phenomenon?
This is such a difficult subject to navigate because there are so many feelings involved, but one thing that I see that is not always acknowledged is the very likely possibility that the feelings of same sex romantic attraction is a condition of mortality and that those feelings may not continue on in a perfected body when we are no longer living in a fallen world.
