Today I came to church to collect some information from my Scoutmaster. I'm close to earning my Eagle--too close to not get it now. However, as upheld by the Supreme Court, the BSA has the right to exclude homosexuals from its membership. Essentially, the coveted Eagle rank is keeping me in the Church and the closet. Call me a coward, I don't want to run 90% of the race and then turn back on the last leg. I hope to be finished with it very soon.

During Sacrament I noticed a little girl a couple of rows in front of me reading a book called 'What Makes a Rainbow?'
...Maybe someday she and the rest of tomorrow's Mormons will find, face, and embrace the answer to that question.
