I stumbled onto a response video by Elder Joseph W. Tolton to the controversial Connecticut gay exorcism mentioned earlier on loldarian.com and thought I would provide an additional forum for his views to be represented.
Let me warn you that much of what Elder Tolton says is quite radical and if you come from the school of Christian fundamentalism you should prepare yourself to be offended.
How many of you who identify as gay or lesbian actually believe that your whole person should be celebrated? Not just the part of you society or your family deems acceptable but your entire being? Have you ever looked in the mirror and said, "I'm gay and it's good?"
Watch him frame in five minutes and thirty three seconds why who you are is a blessing and why the black community is entrenched in homophobia.
