“No man can love another man as much as I love Joseph.” – Brigham Young

God has ordained that men are to marry women. Further, God has ordained that there will be great joy in the friendship between brethren.

“No man can love another man as much as I love Joseph.” – Brigham Young

Thus we see that the highest form of love is not erotic/sexual/romantic, but the love of brotherhood (or sisterhood). Those men who claim to love another man and thus marry that other man, are most sadly mistaken in how one expresses the highest forms of love. Thus we see that God did indeed ordain for man to have great love for one another. Thus we see that homosexuality is Satan’s counterfeit of a holy thing. God has commanded that men are not to be erotic/sexual/romantic together, but this does not mean that man is to be isolated from one another. Great joy is ordained to exist between brethren in associations with one another. Playing sports together, laughing together, working together, speaking together of the welfare of themselves and their families, and even suffering together, which suffering serves to unite souls more closely than perhaps anything else possibly could.

In the last days, the hearts of men would wax cold the scripture says. We can discern that many men are sad for the loss of brotherly kindness which they should have found in their fellow men, and when the Devil’s counterfeit comes along (homosexuality), some, even many, fall. As one wise man afflicted with same sex attraction said, “I’m not going to let my sexuality get in the way of my spirituality.” May those so afflicted have that courage, and wait upon the Lord for the day when brotherly kindness will again abound among the human race, when men shall obey the command of the Lord, to “even as I have loved you, love one another.”
