Living as a Gay Latter-day Saint

A podcast with host Richard Ostler, “Listen, Learn & Love”. Episode 392, posted with permission.

Warren Bittner, director of the Sons of Sacrifice training program, joins with Richard Ostler of the Listen, Learn, and Love podcast to bring Warren’s story to us.

This episode is Warren’s story before he met Maurice Harker, CMHC, Founder and Director of Life Changing Services. Warren met Maurice in his efforts to align his sexual behavior with his beliefs.

Warren shares his experiences of living as a same-sex-attracted Latter-day Saint for more than 60 years.

In 1976, as a teenager, he found himself in the office of the Presiding Bishop of the Church to get help for being gay, where he was put in contact with a list created by President Spencer W Kimball, which if followed, would make him gay no longer.

The list changed the direction of his life in surprising ways, and Warren says it also saved his life.

Warren shares his honest and vulnerable stories on the Listen, Learn, and Love podcast.

After working through Men of Moroni for his own addiction issues, Warren began working with Maurice Harker, CMHC, to create a program focused on the needs of Latter-day Saint men with same-sex-attraction who also need the addition recovery training Life Changing Services provides.

The result is the Sons of Sacrifice training program. The Sons of Sacrifice training program is for men with same-sex attraction who want to keep their covenants with God, especially of a sexual nature, and remain active members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
