Default Religion and Homosexuality

I just wanted to share the following link for those who have been or get harrassed by people who claim 'it is against the will of God' to fall in love with a same sex partner.

That's... probably the best thing I have ever seen! When I get a little more time, I will have to take a look at that! :) Thanks so much for posting that.

Well I question the stigma that God hates gays. I was almost killed in a car crash but against all odds survied to live another day. If God knew I was gay then why save me from death? This has been something that troubles me and I discuss in my book.

It's a strange debate but we are who we are and man was created in God's image. Doesn't say much for girls does it!

After everything in my life, being bi is merely a sin to others..Ever been run out of a church because of this? to be stared down and ASKED to leave a place of so called love and praise..so many of these ppl who are open minded and yet close their doors to the ppl in need, for every one that is truely accepting there are 1000 that are not..
