Brother Blake that is much easier said than done. I am talking Lodge only here but to exclude your sexual orientation from lodge would be dang near imposable. This means both parties would have to submit to this rule otherwise someone who is quite about their orientation would be known to be gay. My orientation was given away on the petition when I was asked if I was married.
Thank you Brother for both of your posts. I knew we got off topic but I did not quite know how to work a back on topic post. That is/was my point exactly. We are asked if we are married off the bat. Or our husbands/wives are invited to events. Therefore it became a question for me if, in this day and age, could you believe it's a sin or not but still call them brother or sister if they posses those qualities.
You have all been extremely helpful and I really appreciate the professionalism of this conversation.
