A room without a roof.

I saw the outburst of posts regarding the legalization of same-sex marriage. I remember Prop 8 in California a few years ago and a guy giving stickers out at church one Sunday. I took two of his Prop 8 stickers and stuck them in the middle of the guys windscreen on the way out of church that day. The 12th Article of Faith forbids us from protesting by sustaining the law of the land. As far as I'm concerned, that's how I understand that article of faith.

New Zealand legalized same-sex marriages back in 2013.  Two friends I went to an LDS school with got married shortly after. They'd been together for 12 years. I was happy for them because they were happy.

I will not judge who someone chooses to love or marry if I am not judged for remaining firm in believing what I do.

It's as simple as that.
