in a mormon way

Hamilton wouldn’t had been the man he became without Eliza. She made sure no one forgot about her husband all through her lifetime. Stop erasing her.

Evan probably wouldn’t had the motivation to progress so far into his life without Zoe. He wouldn’t have grown into the self he is in the finale without her. Stop Erasing her.

Nabulangi was the one who encouraged Cunningham to preach during Man up, progressing the plot greatly. Stop erasing her.

Fieryo sacrificed himself so Elphabea could get away, knowing he’d probably die in the process. Stop erasing him.

The newsies would’ve barely gotten anywhere if Katherine hadn’t approached them and written the article. She was the one who came up with the idea of publishing the newsies banner. Stop erasing her.

Christine was a big reason Jeremy got the squip, without her, the musical never would’ve taken place. Stop erasing her.

"He made me this way on purpose:" Brave Mormon girl, 12, comes out as lesbian to entire church
The youngster, named Savannah, told the church that she believed God created her this way and there is nothing wrong with her
By Rhian Lubin

“A courageous Mormon girl aged 12 stood up to her church and came out as a lesbian to the entire congregation.

The youngster, named Savannah, told the church in Utah county, near Salt Lake City in the US, that she believed God created her this way and there is nothing wrong with her.

But church officials turned off her microphone and told her to sit down, reducing the girl to tears.

In her speech, posted on YouTube , she said: “My name is Savannah and I want to share my testimony with you.

"I believe I am a child of heavenly parents. I don’t know if they talk to us, but I feel in my heart that they made me and that they love me. I believe I was made the way I am, all parts of me, by my heavenly parents.

"They did not mess up when they gave me brown eyes, or when I was born bald. They did not mess up when they gave me freckles or when they made me to be gay. God loves me just this way because I believe that he loves all his creations.

"I do believe he made this way on purpose, not part of me is a mistake.

"I do not choose to be this way, and it is not a fad. I cannot make someone else gay and being around me won’t make anyone else this way. I believe that God wants us to treat each other with kindness, even if people are different, especially if they are different. Christ showed us this.”

She continues: “I believe that we should just love. I believe I am good. I try my best to be nice to each other and stick up for those that are hurting. I know I’m not a horrible sinner for being who I am. I believe God would tell me if I was wrong.

"I hope someday to go on dates, go to school dances, to hold hands and to go off to college. I hope to find a partner and have a great job. I hope to get married and have a family.

"I know these dreams and wishes are good and right. I know I can have all of these things as a lesbian and be happy. I believe that if God is there, he knows I am perfect, just the way I am and would never ask me to live my life alone or with someone I am not attracted to.”

Musical Theory: Subtext in The Book of Mormon suggests that Elder Price is gay and that McPriceley could be a real thing

 So, I’m a big fan of this show on YouTube called Game Theory. It’s a show that looks at the subtext of video games to figure out answers to unanswered questions in the games (like who Rosalina in Super Mario Galaxy really is, or the true story of the Five Nights at Freddy’s series). It’s really interesting and I’d highly recommend you check it out. I’m also a big fan of a tumblr user called Loudest Subtext in Television, who is famous for writing excellent meta detailing all the gay subtext in the TV show Sherlock. The other day I was reading her meta and listening to the Book of Mormon cast recording, and it got me wondering… is there any subtext in that show? I initially dismissed the idea, but then as I started actually thinking about it… lots of weird things started to make sense, and I actually found a lot of evidence for what I suggested in the title of this post. I eventually came up with the theory that i’m about to present to you now. If you ship McPriceley, or you’re a big fan of the show, or you just like subtext in general, you might want to read on (obviously spoilers for the show below) :D

Keep reading

  • Cunningham: *Walks into the bedroom* Hey, Kevin, do you wanna-
  • Price: *awkwardly lying in bed under the covers, face red, and slightly out of breath* What’s up?
  • Cunningham: ...
  • Cunningham: Connor’s under the bed, isn’t he?
  • McKinley: *Muffled from beneath the bed* No.
hey, how about I give you some sad book of mormon prompt ideas

what if the mission hut burnt down 

what if the only way district 9 would continue to be supported by the church one elder had to do sexual favors for the mission president

what if elder church’s mother died

what if instead of running away, the general shot arnold after saying he’ll turn him into a lesbian

what if there was an unannounced visit by the general and he shot kevin and connor

what if instead of sleeping to go to the hell dreams, connor decided to stay awake for eight straight days

what if elder thomas and elder mckinley get missing

what if kevin got aids after his mission

but you know what’s sad about this?

these fanfictions already exist

  • Price: I can fit my whole world in the palm of my hands!
  • McKinley: Are you going to cup my face? Because that’s so unoriginal.
  • Price: I was actually going to grab your butt because I didn’t know the face was an option.
Courageous 12-Year-Old Mormon Girl Comes Out As Gay In Front Of Her Entire Church
"I believe that God wants us to treat each other with kindness, even if people are different -- especially if they are different."

I’m really praying she doesn’t have a horrible existence until she’s 18 as a result of this.

You don’t understand how funny this title is. I’ve been laughing at this for nearly 15 minutes now , just , the way it’s worded “ cast of the Book of Mormon speak ” it’s worded as if they have never spoken. And now they are finally speaking for the first time. I’m crying. This is so fucking funny , thank you cbs
