I, like you, grew up in a fundamentalist, Baptist household where everything is a sin. To admit I was gay was like turning the world upside down, and I honestly believed that because I wasn't celibate and I thoroughly enjoyed not being celibate that somehow that stamped my ticket for hell quickly, because that is how I grew up. I rationalized and justified for a long time, spent hours on my knees repenting of my egregious sin.
It wasn't until I was taught the Scriptures don't say a thing against same sex attraction. What it condemns is sexuality when used in the context of rape, or idol worship. It was like a weight lifted off my shoulders. I was free and didn't need to feel guilty about it and didn't need to be celibate. Keltic is right, why would God make you that way, then turn right around and tell you that you can't do it. Doesn't make sense.
I am not going to sit here and say, go ahead, have sex and have it often, because I know the dilemma you face. What I am going to say is search the Scriptures and talk to some people who have done so, and then pray about what it says and what they say. You won't feel comfortable until you do.
