In Tony Kushner's "Angels in America," the angel commands humankind to "go back," to retreat to 1950s America (the one seen in KBYU reruns). "Go back" is the Mormon reply to most things. But human experience isn't so simple. We can't keep shoving into the closet realities that don't fit that model.
We need to update our models, to acknowledge the things that don't fit, to expand our understanding of "liberty and justice for all," just as we did in the past with women, blacks, the handicapped, Jews, Catholics and, yes, even Mormons, who now won't give similar allowance for difference to others.
Kushner's reply to the angel was that "the world spins forward," not backward. We must go forward in our understanding, however incomplete, of justice and freedom.
That's similar to Mormons' "continuing revelation." It's time they asked for some.
