    Was the statement “looked too gay” actually used? Because that’s what putting it in quotes makes it seem like.

    You also said that the victim is still permanently psychologically scarred, but he actually passed away a few years ago.

    And lastly, you can’t strip a Mormon child to his temple garments, as they are not given to someone until they receive their Endowment, which happens either before you go on a mission or before you get married. This doesn’t happen until you’re at least 18.

    Lastly, high school IS a long way to dig for political dirt, even though it was still a horrible thing that was done. I believe that is the key point that most people who frown at the WashPo article are trying to make.

      The post has been changed to clear up your concerns.

      As far as “most people who frown at the WashPo article are trying to make” perhaps you YOU should restate that as Most Mormons and Republicans frown at the WashPo article are trying to make.”

    It’s not the act itself that is as much the issue now, but his inability to admit what he did was wrong and express remorse for it. And this isn’t as far back as they’ve had to dig for dirt. This is just the beginning and that defining moment in his life, and he failed to learn anything from it. That is what worries people. Tormenting someone because of their sexuality real or perceived is an intolerable act, but he views it with non chalance, that’s a dangerous trait to have in a leader of ALL men.
