In Teachings of President Spencer W. Kimball (the 2007 manual for Priesthood / Relief Society) the word "overcome" is used twice on page 181:
"If one has homosexual desires and tendencies, he OVERCOMES them the same as if he had the urdge toward petting or fornication or adultery".
Here, in the priesthood manual of 2007, is still the teaching that homosexual tendencies are grouped with the sins of petting, fornication and adultery and as such, must be overcome! What's up with that???
"Again, contrary to the belife and statement of many people, this [practice of homosexuality] (and may I add the implied "tendency" as noted above), is OVERCOMABLE and forgivable, but again, only upon a deep and abiding repentance, which means total abandonment and complete transformation of thought and act."
Well, I concur that when talking about the sexual act in my current realm of mortality, there needs to be forgiveness and transformation. But, when talking about thoughts, and tendencies, that are part of every day of my life that just come... I must differ.
