First, I don’t share the same views as my church on most matters in this regard.

Second, my point is that people misconstrue the kindness my church tries to extend. Yes, my church does believe that gays should not have the right to marry. But that is not the same as discriminating in the workplace, in medical care, or elsewhere. My church, in spite of that belief, tries to be very embracing and tries to stifle intolerance. There is clearly a difference with believing something is immoral and actively trying to harm or stifle the person doing that something.

Do you believe it is immoral for my church to hold these views? That’s fine. If you are embracing of Mormons and have open dialogue of why you disagree, that’s great. If you discriminate Mormons for holding those views by, for example, speaking unkindly, making prejudiced remarks, not welcoming to a barbecue, or refusing to hire one for a job, then that’s not okay. If you are destroying or damaging Mormon property for our views, then that’s definitely not okay.

My point is that just because you disagree on the morality of the behavior, it doesn’t mean you have to be unkind or discriminatory.
