A Latter-Day Saint Comes Out

Jimmy Lee Hales, a student at Brigham Young University, decided to come out to his friends and family, and film the experience.  On the whole, folks take the news well.  But in the blurb accompanying the video on YouTube, Hales writes, "I'm still, and will forever be, a faithful Mormon, so it looks like I'm not going to marry and therefore live a single life through this mortal existence. Sucks."

Sure does.

My guess is the odds of his obeying the Mormon law of chastity for the rest of his days are about the same as the Angel Moroni forking over the golden tablets to Hillary Clinton.
