Elizabeth Smart’s father comes out as gay
The father of kidnapping victim Elizabeth Smart is confirming a social media post in which he came out as gay and said he and his wife were divorcing.
Ed Smart posted a letter to Facebook yesterday in which he said he needed to be honest and truthful about his sexual orientation.
He also said he doesn't see a place for himself in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Smart's letter was removed from Facebook shortly after it was posted yesterday because it was only supposed to be seen by family and friends.
