|Hello, I understand your predicament, or at least I think I do. I was a closeted bisexual since I was nine and only recently came out to my parents and brother and his wife.
I am still a Christian.
I have Christian friends.
I have gay friends.
I have atheist friends.
What's the difference?
I really try to be nice on a general level. If they ask what my beliefs are, I'm going to tell them honestly. If they're going to walk away, that's their own affliction and I can't stop them. But if they are going to get up in my face about it and tell me I'm going to Hell for something THEY cannot change, you bet your a$$, I'm going to tell it like it is.
I believe in forgiveness. I believe that God will forgive me for being this way. Overly religious people will argue that I can be "cured", but I can't. I haven't been a relationship with either sex, but I feel like I won't be lead one way or another just by dating one. I'm always going to be attracted to both sexes regardless of who I'm dating.
I believe in love. Love everyone. Think about it:
Hate is a sin.
God is love.
God cannot sin for He is perfect.
Therefore, God cannot hate.
He tries to abolish SIN. He doesn't want to abolish the sinners. I believe in confessing the sin because sin is air, almost. We can't avoid it. The thoughts of sin themselves are sin.
He want to save us. Give us a home in Heaven. All you got to do is believe in Him. You don't have to go to church.
I'm not condoning all sins here--murder, rape, incest, they're still wrong by public law and wrong by moral law. But being avoided for loving someone of your own sex is ridiculous.
LOVE IS THE MOVEMENT.
