New place

I am now in a new place with respect to the church. I've never told a church leader about my attractions. I was contemplating it as another one of my kids is coming up on baptism age. I want to be square with God. That choice is out of my hands now. My friend whom I first told about being gay is now my bishop. He was sustained today. He already knows all about me, so there's no choosing to keep my secret from the church anymore. Still processing how I feel about this.

It could be a great opportunity. We held a 52 stake fireside a year ago, and I was on the panel discussion. It was a bit daunting at the time, but overall a great experience. It's nice to not be holding this secret.

I don't think that being gay is a sin in itself (at least not by how it is defined lately in the church). Of course it really all depends on the person who holds judgement at the time--but rather by behavior.

If you're still a worthy Priesthood holder by the church's standards there shouldn't be any reason why you couldn't perform your child's ordinance. Let us know how it goes.
