Discussion of Church involvement in political measures regarding gay marriage in California, Arizona, and elsewhere has fed continued dialogue among Latter-day Saints both where political initiatives are taking place and abroad. The place and meaning of tolerance and viability of race-orientation have come up as additional themes of interest to Latter-day Saints. The following is a heavy sampling of some of the news media and bloggernacle discussions taking place:

About Ty Ray

Ty Mansfield is a practicing marriage and family therapist and currently lives with his wife and son in Texas doing doctoral work in family therapy. He enjoys playing racquetball, participating in triathlons, eating Thai food, and thinks that the greatest technological advancement of the 21st century was the invention of the iPhone (he might even be a little obsessed with it). Ty is a co-author with Fred and Marilyn Matis of In Quiet Desperation and later compiled an anthology of devotional articles by gospel scholars and personal essays by individuals who experience same-sex attraction, title Voices of Hope. More recently, he and his wife, Danielle, wrote a cover story for the May/June 2012 issue of LDS Living magazine. Some of the topics currently on Ty's mind (and which will likely be the topic of his posts) include same-sex emotional intimacy and friendship, intersections of Eastern thought and sexuality, and the dynamics of marriage when one partner experiences same-sex attraction.
