Mormons marching in Pride

What do you do when you believe what your church says about love, but you think they aren’t showing it very well to gay people? If you’re Erika Munson, you just decide to show it yourself. It turns out, she wasn’t alone. (SL Tribune)

“I felt that there must be people like me,” Munson said, “who are committed to the church, who believe in the gospel and want to live Jesus’ word, which is, ‘love one another.’ ”

Munson’s group is not affiliated with the LDS Church or any political party, and though it started just a few weeks ago, it’s been gaining steam through social media. As of Wednesday, the group had more than 900 members on Facebook, and more than 100 had committed to Sunday’s march in downtown Salt Lake City.

And what’s the likelihood of a group of gay Mormons marching in the 24th of July parade? Tit for tat.

Update: There was a huge contingent of Mormons in the Pride Parade today. There is no way I would even estimate the count but it was surprisingly large.

Some may not appreciate the historic significance of this show of support for LGBT. But, it is historic.

20 would be historic. What you just witnessed was a game changer.

I can’t even process yet what it means. But mormons don’t buck the church.
