Chicago, IL — On Friday, Marie Osmond appeared in the "Person of the Week" interview on ABC World News to share about lessons she has learned in life.

Osmond, 53, recounts how she survived her darkest days in a new book about strength and self-respect, The Key is Love, which was largely inspired by her mother Olive's advice.

This week, as the Supreme Court deliberated on cases involving same-sex marriage, Osmond told ABC, "The God that I believe in is a God of love, not fear."

Osmond, whose daughter is a lesbian, said, "I believe in their civil rights as a mother. My daughter deserves everything she desires in life."

"I don't think God made one color flower, I think He made many."

Would have been nice for her to have this opinion before her allegedly gay son killed himself.

How do we know she didn't have this opinion all along? It is unfortunate that people find it far easier to criticize than praise.

Marie has gone through the same process that is happening millions of times a year in the U.S. A person accepts the teachings of their faith group and is opposed to LGBT rights and marriage equality. Then they find out that a close friend or relative is a lesbian, gay or bisexual. They learn the reality of being part of the LGBT community. They change their mind and start to support marriage equality. But Marie has gone one step forwards and has openly acknowledged her LGBT support, actively defying her faith group.

Sorry, but you can not change how God feels and teaches against this immorality. I don't care what denomination you claim, homosexuality is an abomination to God and a stench in his nostrils. As individuals they already have the same rights as heterosexuals. Her being Mormon so called Christian who's denomination believes in more than one wife and manipulates God's Word does not nor will change the way God teaches against this or any other sin.
