    Such a wonderful and heart rendering interview and a true revelation indeed after much soul searching and heartache. Dear David, although you discovered the amazing truth that your sexuality is absolutely acceptable by a loving God and completely compatible with the gospel of Jesus Christ, it is obviously totally at odds with current church policies. Therefore David, how can you be honestly happy in an organisation that seems to be so obviously a corruption of that wonderful Truth. Although you say that you have had callings and that you feel you are more accepted by the members, do you honestly feel that you are totally accepted?
    If you do find and fall in love, and marry and live together with your husband, do you still believe you would enjoy full fellowship with the church and its leaders?
    As church policy stands presently, you and your husband would clearly face church discipline. So how can you be happy with an organisation that still discriminates against your love and sexuality? After all, you discovered that the Gospel and your sexuality are as one, but it is patently obvious that the church is still completely opposed to this wonderful Truth.
