I'm not discouraged. I see this as being part of the plan. God has 
already told us what would happen in the last days. So, why worry? Do 
your part, and know that Christ will come out victor in the end. That is 
where hope lies, in seeing beyond this earthly realm, and into the 
heavens beyond.

If the whole earth turns homosexual, except for the Saints, so what? How 
will that affect your testimony? How will it overcome the work of God?  
We have many more righteous on earth right now than Noah had in his day 
before the ark. Why should we be any different? Don't forget, those that 
be with us are more than those against us. We have battalions of angels 
ready to fight our battles. God told us in the Book of Mormon that if 
necessary, he will call down fire from heaven to defend us from His 
enemies.

So, we put up the good fight, knowing that we'll lose some skirmishes 
along the way, but the entire war is ours. And that IS a comforting 
thought to me.
