Homophobia and the Mormon Blogosphere

An irl friend of mine is being raked over the coals on a Mormon blog on Patheos. TL;DR his Mormon college treated him like shit for being gay and he filed a Title IX complaint. The newspaper article came out a few days ago and now the Mormon blogosphere has found it and is calling into question my friend’s religion and character. It’s horrendous – it’s awful – and I’m so angry I can barely type.

If you feel like wading into the fray, you can find the blog post in question here. The horrendous shit is happening in the comments section.

Nicolas is a good person and any religious or academic organization should be bending over backwards to protect his, and every other LGBTQ+ person’s, rights and safety. Instead he’s been stabbed in the back by red tape and dogma.
