Re: 12-Year-Old Girl Comes Out As Lesbian During Testimony Meeting

The issue isn't about her liking girls or boys.  The issue is about her using testimony meeting to publicly announce her intentions to participate in gay marriage, which is contrary to the teachings of the prophet and is forbidden by church policy.

Again, sexuality is a life-long developing process.  Locking yourself into one stereotype at 12 years old is premature at best.  Many boys are attracted to other boys and prefer the company of other boys (girls are icky) until they get to puberty.  Obedience to God's laws, not alignment to the world's labels, should be the emphasis for parents teaching children.

I understand the main issue. It's just odd to some of us that some people are making whether she can know if she likes guys or girls at age 12 an issue. (Have not seen that here). Some also feel it is an issue that she brought "sexuality" into sacrament meeting. While I am not comfortable  with her announcing she hopes to live things contrary to the teachings of God I don't see her bringing sexuality into the meeting anymore than if she had said she hopes to someday marry a man in the temple.

Time for a change.  I am yungmom, but have wanted a new username for some time.
