(Originally aired June 25, 2018) Guest: Tom Christofferson, Author of “That We May Be One: A Gay Mormon's Perspective on Faith and Family,” published by Deseret Book. Across the country, conservative religious communities struggle with how to embrace LGBT members. Last summer I spoke with Tom Christofferson, who is openly gay and an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. That combination presents challenges, which he explores in his memoir “That We May Be One.” Tom Christofferson says his story is not a “prescription” for others to follow. But he hopes people will find some of his experience helpful. Here’s our interview from last summer.
