020:  John Bonner, Gay Mormon, on boundaries and hope

020: John Bonner, Gay Mormon, on boundaries and hope

John Bonner, a counselor in SLC, tells his story of realizing he is gay, his struggle to change himself on his mission, and his self-acceptance and celebration as he undergoes his own faith transition.  We talk about messy faith crises, boundaries with family, and in part 2 John reads 3 letters he wrote at key moments in gay Mormon history:  Nov 5, the date of the exclusion policy, when Russell M. Nelson declared the policy a revelation, and when David Bednar declared "there are no homosexuals in the church."  These letters are soul-stirring and a must-listen for every Mormon, my friend John is a beacon of hope.
