ABC News Profiles ‘Happily Married Gay Mormon’

CREDIT:

Last night, ABC’s Nightline profiled Josh Weed, the openly gay Mormon man married to a woman and raising a family who came out publicly last month. ABC should be lauded for including dissenting opinion from John Dehlin, a Mormon who condemns Weed and his wife for making a “dangerous example” of using spirituality to manage his same-sex orientation, noting that he’s heard from mothers asking their gay sons why they can’t be like Josh. The segment also highlighted that Weed is a therapist, and he claimed that he doesn’t try to change anyone’s sexual orientation, but it didn’t address whether he encourages his clients to suppress their “unwanted sexual attractions” like he has.
