Dear 100 Hour Board,

I just perused a recent post about same-sex attraction from the LDS Newsroom, http://www.newsroom.lds.org/ldsnewsroom/eng/public-issues/same-gender-attraction . I found it insightful, causing me to re-evaluate some of my thoughts on the matter. For example, I fully believe and support the doctrinal views on homosexuality; however, a part of me wants to find a path of compromise with the disagreeing groups. Such a path, after reading this, seems an extremely fine line to tread. What are your thoughts on this article?

A: Dear Terpsichore,

My thoughts are that someone could safely disagree with what was said and be a member in perfectly good standing. It's up to you how you feel about it. Consider what they said about it, take it to God, decide how your feel, and act accordingly. Basically, I felt the same way about the issue after reading it as before I read it.
