Member of LDS Family Fellowship Weigh-in

LDS Family Fellowship (http://ldsfamilyfellowship.org) is a diverse group of individuals, mostly parents with gay children, active in helping to establish equal rights for their gay children. This is a post where they can add their feeling from watching the film “Blessing.”

“Blessing” is a powerful, short film about the nuances encountered in typical LDS families with gay members. Mr. Williams has done a masterful job in laying bare the subtle and not so subtle forms of discrimination within a family that is obviously trying to be tolerant while not showing approval for an out gay family member they don’t understand or approve. The film utilizes a particularly poignant interaction in the relationship between a father and his gay son, their ecclesiastical leaders and other family members to serve as an example of the tension that exists when unconditional love and tolerance are not proffered. It is a beautiful film with a great message for everyone. – Gary Watts
