Help For Gay Mormons?

After proposition 8 and its funding by the Mormon community, gay Mormonism sounds like kind of an oxymoron. You can be gay, or you can be a Mormon, but you can't be both. That's why I was surprised by this article in the Salt Lake Tribune, which is supposedly a secular newspaper in what is considered by many to be a non-secular state. The article discusses two up-coming conferences aimed specifically at those Mormons who "struggle with same-sex attractions". The headline of the article surprised me as well:  "Gay ex-Mormon Finds Peace, Joy; Others Seek to Change Same Sex Desires".
