LDS apostle's gay brother worries for future of LGBT people in the church | KUTV
Thank you for this post. A few thoughts. If I am not mistaken, Tom Christofferson is still excommunicated even if he is attending LDS Church meetings as he is still with his partner or husband - he was not completely clear about the legal status of their relationship. I certainly respect him for remaining true to his commitment to his life partner while at the same time wanting to find a place in the LDS Church. As it is now he is at the complete mercy of his local church leaders to determine to what extent he may or may not participate in LDS services as an excommunicated man. It appears that he is lucky to have an enlightened bishop and stake president who allow him to bear his testimony and sometimes teach lessons in priesthood meeting even though he is excommunicated. It is possible that since his brother is an apostle, local church leaders are willing to give Tom some leeway.
Gay brother of Mormon apostle shares his spiritual journey

Because the LDS Church teaches that being gay is not a sin, but acting on it is, some Mormon parents decide that, to be faithful, they have to reject their kids in same-sex relationships. You know, stick to their standards. Christofferson, the year-old gay brother of LDS apostle D. Todd Christofferson, says his parents followed neither course.
