|Hey dude hey. I couldn't help but notice your discussion on homosexuality with philosopherbynight. I don't think I'm fully ready to join the discussion. But I'm curious to your complete stance on homosexuality and the Bible. And the Christian church's perspective on homosexuality.|
Hello Doneva okay so this is my last post related to anything religious for tonight I won’t subject my followers to any more debates lol
To start off I’ll clearly state I’m Catholic, as you already know, I go to church regularly and I even was an alter boy for a long time in the past but that being said, I don’t consider myself “religious” the slightest but I am spiritual. I really don’t care what members of the church may think about Homosexuality because at the end of the day, being Christian or any other religion for that matter boils down to our own individual relationship with God. People here have asked me how can I possibly be Christian and be Gay and well to answer that, I’ll admit that I’ve always known that God has loved me regardless of who I’m attracted to. When I first realized I was not straight after all, I feared not what God would think of me but rather the way society perceived me. Deep down within me a voice, a presence has always reassured me that God does not care about who I love the slightest bit, he only cares about the person I am and the person I will become. When I go to mass, I don’t really think about what the man or woman in front or besides me thinks about Gay people, that’s not on my mind the slightest. I go to church to have my alone time with God and I essentially try to block everyone out. It obviously hurts me to see members of religious groups spreading bigotry and ignorance but there’s only thing that I can do and that’s pray and try to educate them. I have a lot of insecurities , as we all do, and the future really scares me but I am rest assured that God will get me through this and even if people don’t believe in God, they can still be comforted by the fact that it does get better somehow because that’s the magic of life, we have our ups and downs but ultimately, when you’re at the bottom , the only other direction to go is up.
