NFL star Steve Young asks LGBT Mormons to "be patient" as church evolves

NFL Hall of Famer Steve Young and his wife Barbara addressed LGBT Mormons at a conference in Utah yesterday asking them to be patient as the Mormon Church evolves to greater acceptance of gays and lesbians:

“More and more people are opening their hearts every day,” Barbara Young said at the 2013 International Affirmation Conference at the University of Utah, The Salt Lake Tribune reports. “You are teaching them about [gays] and Jesus and that his love is infinite.”

Steve Young, a former San Francisco 49ers quarterback and a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, said he seeks, “to build bridges with my gay brothers and sisters. We need to see each other as Jesus sees us.”
