I have a friend who chose to go down like this and till this date she regrets her choice , as for me? i think it totally up to you what you want to do but don't forget your elders are here only to advise you. I know that it's not been long since this Gay/Lesbian thing started in fact these type of people used to be called " crazy" some time back as I remember now that it's more common they are being accepted into the society, I honestly have no problem but I personally think Its not a good choi

What are you on about, #67? Go down like what? One doesn't choose to be homosexual any more than one chooses to be left-handed. You just are or you are not. BTW, they were also considered crazy, along with gingers, and anyone else who didn't fit the ideal. Homosexuals have been around just about as long as people have. Society's feelings about them have always been mixed but tolerance is slightly outweighing intolerance these days. People like you that judge under the guise of being accepting

#94 the way I see it, being raised on a catholic school, is that god gives you liberty to do as you wish with your life, as long as you follow the 10 commandments. in which it does not say you shall not be gay/lesbian. and the ones Jesus added, to love god above all things, and treat your neighbor as yourself... again it doesn't say a word about your sexuality, in fact, by treating badly the gay community you are sinning against the word of god

Wow, Jess. Think about it for a minute. Do you really think people would choose to be gay? Do you think people just wake up one morning and think, 'Hey, you know what sounds like fun? Being judged by ignorant strangers for the rest of my life. Sweet deal, bro! Sign me up!' - no. A gay person can't turn straight any more than you can turn gay. We don't choose our race, and we don't choose our sexuality. We play the cards we're dealt and hope not to run into many people as uneducated as you.

but in the bible also says that the one who is with out sins may cast the first stone, god is the only one who can judge us, not you. and you must remember that the bible was written by men. not all of it is the word of god

ok I'm gonna show you that it's not, if you're a guy, no matter what you might want, if you're straight, you are going to find other penises disgusting. and if you're gay you're gonna find vaginas disgusting. you might have sex with another guy by choice, but if you straight you are going to find it repulsive non the less

Actually all God wants is to be loved and for people to believe him and his son. Nothing else. No person would choose a lifestyle where they would get attacked and abused. I respect the people who can proudly say they are christian and homosexual, it is putting homophobic people in their place. In the end it's God's decision to judge, not humanity. If you start picking a part someone cause of their sexuality, look at yourself and see who the real "sinner" is. Congrats OP for coming out:)

I'm gay myself, and I didn't choose to be gay. It's just who I am. Not that I'd choose any differently, because I love myself just the way I am, thank you very much.

The holyspirit guided the ppl who wrote the bible. so technically god wrote the bible. Actually, no one is born gay/lesbian. along their lives they get twisted and wrong thoughts/imaginations/friends and choose to be gay/lesbian, which is a sin. God destroyed the ppl of a place I can't rmb in the bible that were full of gays because of his own reasons I do not fully understand but ultimately it is because God, does not approve of gays/lesbians as they have been influenced by the devil.

I agree with #4. I also just want you to know that it will get better. There's nothing wrong with being gay, and good on you for coming out. I hope you find love and when you do, I hope your parents can be supporting.

6: Is completly right. Religion was created for the purpose of controling people. Its quite sad that people are still falling into the murky depths of a pool of ancient nonesense, obliterating there view of what is reality.

Reply

...no? Really? The Bible, Thora and Koran do not say what's right and what's wrong? What you can do and what you are not allowed to do? Please, read one of those holy Books and then we'll talk again. Organised religions were maid to control people. It's not that difficult to understand, the law was in those days not the same as now, so they had to come up with something. The Bible was actually full of laws, like, 'don't kill people', 'don't steal', 'don't fuck anothers person wife'...and stor

w/o wanting to turn this in a religious debate, religions were at first created for the sole purpose of answering questions that could not be answered in any other way. for example, they could not explain how the earth was created so they invented earth in seven days (for catholics(do any other religion believe that too)). it is later that the church found it very lucrative to allie with governments, they had more power and yes at that time, religion had become a mind control tool. today i do no

@59: You're right and wrong at the same time. While the books of religion say what is right and wrong, it doesn't say you're not allowed to do it. Please understand, there are two types of religious people: There are people that take every word of their book literally and if you don't, then you are the spawn of the devil. They are what I call "religious freaks." These are the ones that make everybody hate Christians and other religions. Then there are ones like me. I'm Christian, y

61: I like how most Christians believe bits and pieces on Christianity (whatever parts they WANT to believe) but not the whole thing. The bible was made from 'gods word' though, so shouldn't it be ALL right? He doesn't make mistakes!

"I do agree in some aspects but christians don't believe heavily in the old testament and can you argue with not stealing or killing anyone?" ...in my experiences, most christians do heavily believe in the old testament. And ofcourse, the not stealing/killing/cheating part is completely logical, but, many things are not. Take the Koran: muslims are not allowed to eat pigs. Why is that? Well, because 1400 years ago, it was dangerous to eat pigs. Nowadays, with all the food control

77: I like your comment. :) Religion is a dangerous thing. It makes people delusional, closed-minded, not open to learning about reality because they already have their 'answers' and alot of people kill for religion.

"Then there are ones like me. I'm Christian, yes. But while the Bible says that homosexuality isn't right, the Bible also says that humans are MEANT TO SIN. We sin constantly, and will be forgiven. So sure, homosexuality may be looked down upon, but it's nothing that will get you sent to Hell or anything. So Christians need to stop making a big fuss over it. If I'm reading the Bible correctly, it says all sins are the same. This means that lies (Santa Clause, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy) that

Reply

@82 Woah, I see a misunderstanding. I did not mean in any way that I believe that homosexuality is sinning. I acknowledge that the Bible says so, yes. I think it shouldn't be, though, and therefore I have absolutely NO problem with homosexuals. I don't think there should be a right and wrong for who you love. The misunderstanding is my fault, I wasn't clear. Be aware that in my beliefs, you only sin for things that aren't even acceptable in daily life. Killing somebody, stealing, cheating

I think it's funny how people on this FML are standing up for gay right groups and bashing religious groups in the same sentence. Seems the open-mindedness is very closed.

ok firstly I can not speak for the Torah or the bible but I can speak for the qur'an it does say what is right and what is wrong I would know my entire life is based on that principle religion is not handed to you on a silver platter u have to think and understand it not blindly follow it it even says that in the qur'an

DjeePee, respectfully, you're wrong. I won't even begin to get into the religious debates, because I have the facts, a well constructed argument, and tenacity on my side. I would talk for hours, and I would win (I would probably not convince you to see it my way, but I would at least show you the validity of Christianity and the invalidity of much of what you've said). However, I have a life and don't have hours to spend on here in a religious debate. That being said, I will leave you with the

That's because gays do exist whilst God does not. (I just couldn't resist) Ah Frenchy, then it's allright. But still, I wonder...It might be a stupid question, but if you don't take the Bible literally, why are you a christian? I mean, you believe in God and that Jesus was his son, and that's a part of the Bible, but what about the other parts? Why being selective? In my opinion, you must believe everything of an organised religion, or nothing. Chosing between things you do believe and thi

Mushyluvsu and Djeepee, for claiming that religion causes closed-mindedness, you're awfully closed-minded yourselves. I am a Jew, and proud to be. My synagogue is a place where homosexuality is generally accepted. The Hebrew school is named after a gay man, and until recently, we had a lesbian rabbi. Religion may have at one point been used to control people, but for many, it gives hope for the future and, in my case at least, a sense of community. I'm from Utah, so I know a LOT of Mormons. Thou

Yes! It bugs me when Christians take everything seriously in the bible (I mean COME ON how can you believe that... seriously) and it also bugs me when they choose things to believe in so to make it "not so bad" because they themselves know that their religion is a bunch of bs and they are trying to make it more believable. So either way, it bugs me. Lol

When I asked people how you could be sure God exists, they all became mad at me, which made me think I was doing something wrong. Thinking and being critical is not wrong.

People are born with the sexuality that they have, and it doesn't change their value as a person in ANY way. I can't be degraded as a person because I am straight, nor can I take any credit for it. It's the same with being gay. You are who you are, and trying to change that leads to nothing but pain and desillusion. Although I usually try to see the good in everyone, #50, it seems like you were born either crazy or an *sshole to me.

interestingly enough, no where in the bible does it say WOMEN can't be gay. Just men. So really, OP, you got the all clear from the bible! if anyone says otherwise, ask for the verse. it doesn't exist. Yay for the bible not being concerned with women whatsoever!

You should've known your parents wouldn't approve. I mean, you should probably come out eventually, and it's too late now, but you should wait till you're completely financially independent before coming out to your ultra religious parents. Or maybe you did. But it sounds like you weren't able to get away from them when they started reading you the bible. FYL though. Maybe your parents will get over it. And, HEY good news you live in Canada, so you can get married some day!
