    I am very glad to see that he was able to move past the brain-washing and dangerous messages of the LDS Church. He’s very articulate (and not to mention–smokin’ hott). We need him to serve as an example to Mormons who are struggling with their sexuality and who’s mental health could be suffering as a result of the self-hate that is derived from the Mormon doctrine on homosexuality. Congratulations to him and his bravery. Keep speaking out!

    That’s hilarious about the “old dude” council that needs to hear all of the graphic details. Those old closeted queens just want to get their jollies through listening to this young buck’s sexual stories.

    On one side; an articulate and witty young man.

    on the other side a “bunch of old dudes” telling others how to live their lives and offering no support or humanity to young people going through traumatic times comming to terms with themselves.

    Reminds me why the world is a better place than it was 50 years ago when the old men rules it everywhere and anyone different had to shut up and put up.

    oh and yes he is very easy on the eye as well and being far too charming for his own good…

    1) He is good looking

    2) He’s stereotypically gay, right down to the lisp. Painfully so. I’m not mocking or ridiculing him. How could his family, church, aquaintances, etc., not know he was gay? Coming out? I don’t call that coming out. To me coming out is someone who isn’t stereotypically gay, i.e. someone who can ‘Pass’.

    @Arch,

    I’m 34 so I’m getting up there. I know many ‘Old’ dudes. I know old dudes who’re are cool as sh*t…and I know young ‘Bucks’ who’re the biggest aholes you’ll ever meet. I know ‘Old’ dudes who’re uber ‘Progressive’, and I know young ‘Bucks’ who’re ultra-conservative.

    The same goes for ‘Old’ women and young ‘Girls’.

    Forced him to come out? Umm… he BURSTS out of the closet every time he speaks. The only way he could seem any gayer would be if he SANG the interview, a la Minnelli.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with him, but geez the parents must be in near-catatonic denial.

    Yes he is a little stereotypical but only in the way that many gay men learn to be from one another. He’s not profoundly effeminate, just mannered. I hope he meets the kind of man who can love him back into his natural self. As for his parents, apparently they actually believe in Mormon doctrin, which means they’re clueless. In time they may come to recognize what their son has come to teach.

    My parents aren’t Mormon, extremely conservative, or even particularly religious (they go to church now and then, that’s about it), but it took a LONG time for them to fully “get it” and move from trying to set me up with a woman, to truly accepting my partner. So, I think this young Mormon man is way ahead of the curve. I suspect that it will take a long time, but his parents will eventually get it too. If not, well, that’s sad… but in the meantime, I wish him well.

    I would imagine that the majority of those assholes who have commented “Check out his lisp; how could they not know he was gay!” never grew up in a Mormon household.

    I currently live in Utah, I spent the first 20 years of my life in a Mormon family (I left many years ago), and I know the guy mentioned in the video. The fact that his parents never knew he was gay isn’t surprising in the least.

    Often times, the only people more deeply in denial than young gay Mormons, are their parents. Although some Mormon parents are progressive and open-minded, the majority (especially those in rural Utah) are so unfamiliar the notion of gay people that they wouldn’t recognize a gay child if he dropped a purse in their lap.

    I applaud him for surviving both his parents and the Mormon Church; I’ve been in similar situations.

    @Coco, ratbastard, sparks, and anyone else who just *can’t believe* that his parents didn’t already know that he was gay: the vast majority of straight people–even non-bigoted straight people–do not think of “gay” as a default assumption. Most straight Americans go about their lives assuming everyone they meet is also straight unless and until gay people themselves tell them otherwise, and whatever physical, audible, and other markers that you think communicate gayness *so* clearly and obviously probably mean very little to them. I know that may be hard to believe from your point of view, but it is true. The same is also true of any other non-racial “difference”–for instance, most Americans also assume everybody is Christian without having any reason to question that assumption either.

      Professional robbery and open theft by monopolies is robbery by illicit investors behind the scenes. Alien moneys are finding ways to bring privatization over America. They are moving into and expanding their hold of formerly held property in all states creating vast manipulations of state and federal laws. Their main line is to gradually shove the City/County Management System. In the long-run, high taxes drive people from their homes. All this is tied to a global touring industry. Eventually, after a full economic rape has taken place through monopolies, a city becomes bankrupt. These imported illicit investors then move out with their ill-gotten wealth, while their allies move in and buy properties as pennies on the dollar.These sort of low-down bastards should be jailed.

      These sons of bitches are a threat to our national free enterprise
      What in the hell is wrong with our congressional Marxianized Congress.
      All recontaminated monopolists, ( corrupt professions ), of alien influence, in hock to these mud-slappers, should be run out of office on a rail. Sorry, some times I forget that I am a Christian. This criminally syndicated network of induced Mafiaism have moved in on Social Security.

    Reading the comments i was thinking the guy was a very femenine flamboyant guy. Surprise, he is not.
    Yes, he is not butch, and yes, it’s not difficult to realize he is gay, but i don’t find difficult to believe his parents had no idea.
    Frankly, the concept of effeminate of this forum astounds me. Maybe Rambo is the model to look for masculinity if people think this guy is such effeminate queen

  12. Ray says

    We should love him and wish him the best as he tries to find a space to have a respectful relationship with his parents.

    If your religion doesn’t demand love you should be asking yourself so serious questions.

    All this stupid religious bigotry has got to GO!

    TWISTING OF THE GARROT
    In supposition, national government has an unanchored mindset that the present administration is nourishing the theory of absolute isolation. At times, such imagination of political iniquity is not discovered within the Pentagon. The presidency hammers away the fact that imperialism is only a fox-hunt within the Near and Middle East, of which will dissipate when Iran will eventually roll over and play dead. Netanyahu is head hunting for Iran.

    Correspondingly, a Combined trio, caucus, Israel, Britain and our grand old republic, America, collusively cultivate global unification of collectivism, to be garnished with an aggregate of cultural, economical and social amenities. International proletarian motivation to revolt shares a mind-set in line with the universal Marxian concept of a world, one-state utopian spinoff alliance. This worker’s icon, hammer and sickle, as a Golan monster, to be spiritualised and globalist political monstrosity representative is to be visualised, a globalist political monstrosity, in line with communism, and I.V.Vladimir Lenin’s premature unveiling of future Bolshevism. The socialists “ First International “ meeting steamed-rolled through decades winding up on the ground floor of the Eastern-End of New York City. Technically; the United Nations Organization is a communist front. The Council on Foreign Relations is a front for communist infilteration.

    The Israel of 1948 is a Counterfeit state. It has become a leech and of a parasite on the back of a vultured administration, in league with professional racketeers. Israel is a hock-shop, operation in winding down an impulsive pseudo-intelligent gangsters grip on the back of Uncle Sam. This self-spawning nest of professional criminality palming itself off as a so-called ally of the West, USA, specifically and Indirectly, using congressional panhandlers, in tightening down a pinpointed dedicated drive to destruct Iran through a maze of national news media in the hands of universal printing bandits. Politico/religious gangsterism urges masses of Americans to approve mental slavery and nihilistic temperaments through ballot-box political surgery, in the hands of Lucifer and his agents of Satan. Our state dept is a caged animal without a growl, while stringing along the Israeli land-poachers and Assyria religious factions. In the name of pseudo democracy, a fifty-state mob machine, like a lamb, is led to the slaughter, as being fed on the opium of fiat currency. While NATO plants troops into alien soil and the ever expanding free-loading operations here at home; then the conclusion is that illicit invasions and homestead cuddling alien invaders is a revolution on its own. We have troops in one-hundred and forty lands, and fools in national office, in an attempt to ready civil wars and revolt throughout countries.

    The destabilization of America runs deeper, as to the communist takeover is near completion. Oil is used to manipulate the pro-communist ruling elite in the District of Columbia. This is a special elite of aristocratic putrefaction being alienated from all fifty-states. These scoundrels are the leading proponents in controlling all state offices, including their appointed presidency. All Near and Far Eastern nations fear and tremble, as drones and stinger-rockets with the inclusion of nuclear weapons hold them in line through fear, while slave-labor and natural resources are imported, become ambivalent as to the GNP. The trashing of American production in unleashing poverty is a well-lain path into the royal arms of incipient communism, Bolshevism, and a One World confederated nest of anti-christian bastards, of whom nailed our Saviour to a tree.
