Skip to comments.Mormon Mom Who Fought for Prop 8, Now Fights for Gay Son [Portman Syndrome]
Posted on 06/25/2013 10:03:46 AM PDT by Antioch
Wendy and Tom Montgomery are devout Mormons from California who pounded on doors in 2008 to support the passage of Proposition 8, the state referendum that overturned the ruling that allowed same-sex couples to marry in California, and is now before the U.S. Supreme Court. They did so not knowing that their now 14-year-old son, Jordan, was gay and would later contemplate suicide because of the church's steadfast belief that homosexuality is a sin that would cut him off from his family not only here on earth but in the afterlife. "One of core tenets we believe in as Mormons is that the family is eternal in nature,"

Let him fight his own battles. Slug folks with his purse maybe.
So they have no moral standards — just selfish interests.
Sin is sin.
Would she defend her little boy if he were a drug addict or alcoholic? After all, they can’t help themselves, either, and what they do is sin, too.
Or Cheney Syndrome.
“Welcome to ‘Good Morning Sodom’ . . . next in the news”oh, here we go.
Self interest leads to much error and evil, which is why it is such a prominent theme in the bible.
Too many ‘journalists’ make it sound like it's the stick-in-the-mud old fogie church elders who arbitrarily decide homosexuality is a sin.
Fact is it is an abomination to God according to His Word.
Some people act as if God’s Word depends on popular opinion or the courts.
The fact is, homsexuality is a sin, and one that God in Heaven has been very specific about.
That's not chagning.
Rather than give in due to their grief, they should remain steadfast and trust in God and His purposes. God still loves their son, he always has. But he does not countenance sin.
So, these folks are now legitimizing the sinful and perverted actions in their son's life, and turning their back on God's will in the proicess.
Sad thing to see. Sick thing for our country...and will lead to our nation's fall if we do not reverse course.
But, heck, we are already well and truly far down that road anyway with issues like abortion and so many others.
Unless we find a way to turn things around...miraculously...the storm's coming...and it's going to be ugly.
Sound like Wendy and Tom Montgomery had a little help in the writing of their manifesto-it’s full of the usual memes and progressive boilerplate.
The first clue is the opening shot: “Mr and Mrs X are devout....” These days the only thing “devout” means is emotional and activist. That’s why Pelosi the Possessed is one of the most devout Catholics in America. PRACTICING means something different. (i.e. follows God’s teachings as it personally applies to one’s life).
Lynne Cheney always has been silent on the issue of homosexuality and gay marriage. I suspect Dick Cheney’s being for gay marriage was his way of splitting the difference, letting his wife uphold her beliefs, yet giving his daughter enough support to stay engaged with her family.
I’ve known a few people who come out as gay and essentially blackmail their parents: support my lifestyle or I’ll cut you off. This is unbearable for people, especially for mothers, and people make compromises.
They’re called left wing hacks who pretend Christians
Who was it that said “Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do” ... ?
MORMONISM 2013 = HARRY REID MARXISM AND GAY SCOUTS !
This is one of the things that has advanced the Homosexual agenda so greatly in the past few years.
Parents and friends who love the Homosexual have decided to aid them in their quest for perverted sex.
I suppose it depends on whose ox is being gored.
I have a Homosexual Nephew, and a Niece, but I do not approve of their sickness. Justifying their perversion because we are related is not my bag.
I wonder if there is any targeting of the children of high-profile anti homosexual rights activists going on.
We have friends whose son has come out as gay. They ave not changed their views at all, but they still love their son. They just agree to disagree. They have been steadfast in telling him why they believe the way they do. They’ve had others talk to him. They continually pray for him.
I don’t think it’s right to shun a child from the family.
Jeff I know you mean well, but you have already stated here on this forum that WHEN your "prophets" tell you to disarm you will do it. I will prdict a step further and state that your "prophets" tell you TURN IN those of us who won't disarm, you will do that too.
I've been in your shoes....Heck I RAISED THE "TITLE OF LIBERTY" on the west steps of the California State Capitol a t a very large rally I held in 1997.
Come out of the cult Jeff, be free. The hard political left turn of Salt Lake sect mormonism should be the only proof you need that the great unchanging I AM does not lead it. You don't have to go any farther back than Ezra Taft Benson to find "inspired" teachings 180 degrees from what Monson and Oaks are pushing today.
