!! OMG, Elizabeth Smart’s dad comes out as gay, is leaving his wife and church !!

Ed Smart, dad of Elizabeth Smart, announced he is gay, divorcing his wife, and also leaving The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“It is with this same spirit that I wish to share the news that I have recently acknowledged to myself and my family that I am gay, the decision to be honest and truthful about my orientation comes with its own set of challenges, but at the same time it is a huge relief.”

Ed on leaving his church:

“As an openly gay man, the Church is not a place where I find solace any longer.Living with the pain and guilt I have for so many years, not willing to accept the truth about my orientation has at times brought me to the point where I questioned whether life was still worth living, I can no longer live trying to appease someone else’s idea of who I should be, and have come to the conclusion that it was never my Savior’s intent to change me from the way I was born.”

A challenging moment for the Smart family, but better late than never! It seems as if Ed has been through it in the closet. Glad to hear he’s living for himself now.

  2. I don’t see how his daughter Elizabeth will readily accept this. She seems to be particularly religious and like most Mormons not at all accepting of what they’re brainwashed to believe..

  3. I understand how he feels I was in his shoes too and being gay and Mormon is not easy, and the generation we grew up in makes it harder to come out, I wish him the best in this healing process and the shit the church will put him through

  4. First time he was on TV years ago my gay-dar was flashing like crazy. Damn I’m good. That Mormon church is so repressive. Just don’t get how he could get it up for that wife if his.

    • What’s wrong with Lois Smart? It’s not her fault her husband like the d. We shouldn’t body shame her as this has nothing to do with her.
