Father’s Day and what I learned from the Mormon Church oh Jesus Christ o... via @YouTube
Maybe the @LDSchurch should look into this video most of all. It talks about an early #Saint from the #Atkin family.
Do you think the #LDS #StakePresident would have something to say about the video in the thread. Well @StakePresident what do you have to say?

An absolutely PACKED room for the hearing on the bill to ban conversion therapy in Utah. I first reported on it here: fox13now.com/2019/01/14/uta… @fox13 #utpol #utleg #LGBTQ
BTW, the @LDSchurch (as you know, a powerful influence in the #utleg) has said it will NOT oppose the bill. @Diocese_of_SLC says it has no position on the bill: fox13now.com/2019/02/20/a-b… @fox13 #utpol #LGBTQ
The committee room is packed with social conservatives, #LGBTQ rights groups and some conversion therapy survivors. So look for this to get interesting: fox13now.com/2019/02/21/bil… @fox13 #utpol #utleg

👏🏿 Listen 👏🏿 Saints. We 'bout to have a whole conversation about these @LDSchurch missionary "farewells" and "homecomings". Cause somebody got to explain to me what in the Army of Helaman is happening in my church right now. THREAD /1 --Zandra
BIG farewells were before my time but I have heard the tales. Apparently back in the day they put the #LDS smack down on the missionary situation cause Saints took up entire sacrament meetings yo momma yo daddy err body in yo family would speak plus like 5 musical numbers. /2 --Z
Now you done took out a payday loan so you could have the Osmonds headline a church talk and you still gotta feed a grip of people at your house after the meeting. Saints dippin into their 401k just have enough fish and loaves to feed 5000. Yo, I heard it was wild! /3 --Z

FACT: Suicide is the number one cause of death of all #Utah youth; this is not the case nationally. More alarming, the teen suicide rate in Utah has doubled since 2011. #LGBT #UTpol #LDS #Mormon #BYU
Another Fact: Teen suicide is lower when there is an #LGBTQ supportive environment. #Utah is notorious for its lack of support for and acceptance of the #LGBT community. #LDS #Mormon #UTpol #BYU
Relatedly, studies show that in areas where homosexuality is tolerated, mental health outcomes for #LGBTQ are the same as non-LGBTQ people. Elevated risk of suicide correlates w/ elevated risk of mental illness that is prevalent among LGBTs living in areas hostile to them.

The story of Gobo Fango is a dismal history of slavery and oppression in South Africa, the United States and from members of the #LDS church. For some strange reason it is often contorted into a "faith-affirming" LDS pioneer story as I recently experienced at church. --Zandra /1
The truth ain't always pretty So if you're members of the families that enslaved Gobo Fango then the history I'm about to drop might be uncomfortable but if we keep reworking LDS racial history to make it "comfortable" we never grow in the Gospel and we repeat our mistakes. -Z /2
Some LDS descendants of slave owners spend too much time spreading generational falsehoods about how their families "freed their slaves when they joined the church" but the slaves chose to stay as "family members". --Z /3
