My take-away was that it’s the Stake President’s prerogative to send whomever they wish to the First Presidency to consider to be a bishop. Assuming they hold the Melchizedek priesthood and are otherwise worthy, they’re fair game.
One clarification: my stake president knows I’m gay. :)]]>
Rusty, you do not have a sexy voice.
Very interesting interview to listen to though. It’s not every day that you get to hear a perspective like this, and it’s really inspiring how you work to make your situation go with your faith and put your faith first.
Hey, if a single (and possibly gay) guy can be a bishop, can a guy who is married to a non-member be a bishop? Not that I think my husband would make a good bishop, just curious.
We may have covered this in the comments at 9M somewhere already, but I forget what the answer was.]]>
