Pensive Unrest

So, I can't sleep...

But in my 'unsleeping' I had a thought:

The time just before I came out of the closet, I was extremely harsh towards homosexuality. I was scared I was losing my faith. I was angry my faith was being challenged. My homosexuality was threatening what I held dear and believed was true, and not only was I unkind to such my homosexuality, I was blowing everything out of proportion: "Accepting my homosexuality would denounce Christianity. Accepting my homosexuality will strip me of my eternal potential. Accepting homosexuality will darken my soul. Etc."

But, mostly, I was simply scared.

I wonder if such is what is happening collectively with the LDS Church and society.
