    Painting all gays with the same brush is ok, but painting all Mormons with the same brush is wrong.

    Do you not see the hypocracy?

      I say that I will no longer support LGBTQ groups unless I can be assured that my funding will not be used to target individuals of my faith for discrimination.

      How does this equate to a broad generalization about homosexual individuals? I commended the advocate in particular for their very balanced and fair coverage of the topic.

        I think the actions of LGBTQ advocacy groups have lost them a lot of legitimacy. I for one will not contribute to LGBTQ groups in the next election cycle because I know that my money that I donate will actively be used to further a bigoted campaign to target individual members of my faith for their affiliation. No one is asking LGBTQ groups to give money to the Mormon church or to any of its official functions, but the campaign against Mormon individuals is simply uncalled for.

        please note the plural tense of 'groups'.  So you will not donate to LGBT groups until they stop the campaign against Mormon individuals.  Who are these groups you speak of?  What LGBT group has carried on a campaign against Mormon individuals?  All I see from your links are a number of angry bloggers.

        to the DOJ painting us all with the same brush:

        Arguments equating homosexuality to pedophilia or bestiality may be disgusting but they should be included for sure as they have been used on both the state and federal level before and have never effectively been rebuked by a court

        Well, neither have the complaints against Mormons been rebuked by a court.

        Again, painting all gays with the same brush is ok, but not Mormons?
