Gays: Don’t Believe the Religious Right: They Are Wrong!


In the last 20 years, gay people have been getting some mixed messages from the Christian Church. Many denominations are debating the issue of homosexuality as a sin and in some the vote is almost equal, but not enough to change Church doctrine from condemning to celebrating homosexuality. I was born in 1946 and did not realize I was lesbian till 1973. A Christian since birth, knowing all the passages on same gender sex, I was scared I’d go to Hell if I acted on my feeling of LOVE (not talking casual sex here) for another woman. I talked with clergy, but they all told me I was going to Hell. There were no theological affirming books to help. I had a Christian mother who was helpful because she didn’t believe homosexual love was a sin. However, I needed to hear that from the Church and that was not the case. There were no mixed messages in my day. Metropolitan Community Church was in its infancy, but I’d never heard of it. So, I was left on my own to figure this out. Well, I wasn’t alone – I had a relationship with God/Jesus and I prayed much and kept reading the ‘clobber’ passages and it didn’t take too many months before I realized that my feelings were nothing like what I was reading in the Bible. So, I trusted in the safety of my soul’s final destination and said “I’m gay and gay is how I’m going to live and love”. I am a gay Christian to this very day. Homosexuality does not have to kill your faith in the Creator & Savior of all, as some Christian clergy erroneously preach. So many gays have bought the lie of condemnation of homosexuality and have paid a terrible price. This does not have to happen to any gay person. It is why I wrote my autobiography, “Is God A Gay Basher?” and am selling it as an ebook ($6), for it explains how I came to peace with my sexual orientation and an even closer relationship with God/Jesus. Whether you are gay or straight, you can benefit from my book.
