Grace: Please start by reading About, and Resources, in the toolbar,
At the top of the page. You may of course ask any church leader, but if their answers show anger and judgement, ask yourself if their behavior reflects the love that Jesus taught us. If their behavior reflects anger and judgement, they are probably coming from feelings of fear and hatred. By their fruits shall ye know them.
Next, please remember that there is no GLBT person that I have ever heard of who has ever said that this was a choice that they have made. Yet most conservative church leaders insist that it MUST be a choice, or it could not be a sin.
When the bible was written, very little was known about human sexuality, or how it developed before birth, in male and female. (When the bible was written, it was thought that the sun revolved around the Earth!) We now know that males and females, especially before birth, have far more in common than difference. Every organ, every tissue, and almost every hormone found in the male is found in the female, and vice versa, they're just a little different in size, shape, or position. And this is true after birth, as well as before The female body provides the pattern that both bodies are formed from. (Hey, us GUYS don't have any use for these breasts!)
Most gay people obey the law, pay their taxes, and often are found in relationships that last for years, often decades.
EDIT: Come back in our "Hello, my name is... introductory forum, and tell us something about yourself. Read what others have said, and you will meet loving, decent Christian people, gay and straight. I am editing this, as I can't say that some of them will be just like you, as you have not yet told us about yourself
Peace and Love, Bruce Chris
