Welcome to SoulForce. Newbie, myself... I think you'll like it on here. These peoples are nice peoples.
I'm straight, but I've been an ally for GLBT for years. The church's stance on homosexuality (and what I thought was God's stance) was part of what made me leave Christianity and become Agnostic for a while. I didn't understand why a loving God would condemn the loving relationships I saw amongst GLBT, and I didn't want anything to do with a God that would do that, so I guess in a way I can understand where you come from...
