BYU Polls Mormon Students On Same-Sex Attraction, But Being Gay Is Not An Option

Mormon leaders at Brigham Young University are attempting to understand their millenial students' thoughts on same-sex attraction in a new survey designed to imply that homosexuality doesn't really exist. 

What other conclusion can one draw when the survey asks students to identify their sexual orientation with only three options that include:

  • I am heterosexual, but I struggle with same-sex attraction.
  • I am heterosexual and do not struggle with same-sex attraction. 
  • Other, please specify

So, either BYU believes that homosexual students are actually straight but suffering with their identity or they intend for LGBT survey-takers to fill out their "other" orientation verbatim. 

Students were asked to complete the survey to "help the Quoram of the Twelve better understand what YSA members believe about same-sex attraction." Unfortunately, it seems the only thing the study's accomplished is allowing the world to see that the governing Latter Day body doen't think gay is an option for Mormon students.

Well as for me being a Mormon is even not an option :/

Well, that might because Mormons don't believe in homosexuality. They think that people might have "homsexual feelings", and that's fine as long as you don't act on them.
Really.
