Donny Osmond: “some of my best friends are gay.”

Emproph: You don’t say? Why, some of my best friends are anti-gay bigots. (Not!)

There's a good analysis of his statement on the marriage matter here:

Donny Osmond: It's alright, if you don't touch

I just want to add one thing.
Donny Osmond: "There are many gay individuals that are members of our church. I know many of them. In fact, some of my best friends are gay. You ask how I react regarding their marriages. Well, I do support our Church leaders who say that we can accept those with gay tendencies in our church as long as they do not act upon their temptations. Everyone has tenancies to succumb to temptation, but we all have the same standard given to us by our Father in Heaven. Whether we may be tempted to be immoral with members of our own sex or of the opposite sex, we are expected to live chaste lives. This is very well explained not only in the Book of Mormon, but in the Bible as well."
Except, Donny dearest, to depict the human need to love and be loved, as a need for you and a ‘temptation to sin’ for gay people, is to unfairly hold gay people to a different standard of humanity itself. Therein lies the hatred.

Or were you suggesting that God set it up that way and that we should respect your worship of an unjust God?
