Marie Osmond talks Sons Suicide and Marriage Equality for Gays

The tide is changing on public opinion for gay marriage.  TIME magazine did a huge article and cover this week about the public opinion shift on gay marriage. 

Even Marie Osmond, who previously was AGAINST gay marriage, has changed her mind. 

Marie Osmond tells Diane Sawyer she believes in marriage equality:

“The God that I believe in is a god of love, not fear. I don’t tell
my children if you’re not good you’re going to Hell. I tell my children
that God will be there for them when they struggle. That’s the God I
believe in...I believe in [my lesbian daughter’s] civil rights, as a
mother. I think my daughter deserves everything that she desires in
life. She’s a good girl. She’s a wonderful child. I don’t think God made
one color flower. I think he made many..
.”

It’s really a great time to witness what is happening in the world. This shift toward loves and accepting the LGBTQ community. I believe we are all here to learn and grow. 
Marie hits the nail on the head, “Bad things happen… you can either medicate it or learn from it. Move on from it. Learn from it. Say I made a mistake. I have made many mistakes….
And she says that one gift that her mother gave her stands above the rest: the gift to
trust and follow her heart. Even when the path seemed bleak, it was this
unwavering faith that allowed her to follow her dreams, both
professional and personal, and survive the hardest times in her life. In her book she talks about her son’s suicide and her lesbian daughter. 

Marie Osmond said that she knows she’ll see her son again in a new interview with “omg! Insider.” The 53-year-old veteran performer was talking about the suicide of her 18-year-old son Michael Blosil, who jumped to his death from a high-rise apartment building in Los Angeles on Feb. 26, 2010.

“I know I’ll see my son again and it’s that kind of faith that gets you through the difficult dark moments,” she said about the approaching three-year anniversary.
“Have I been through dark moments? Absolutely. Is it difficult to see
the light at the end of the tunnel? Sometimes it’s very challenging, but
I have great hope. If I were to say one thing I would want to spread
through this show and the thing that I do is give people hope. To let
them know that we all go through it.”
