Christianity And Homosexuality Quotes (16 quotes)
Letter from a Gay Christian
One night I was reading the stories of people who had left the church because they thought God hated them simply because they were attracted to the same sex. I was so overcome with emotion that I put the book down, got alone in another room, fell to my knees and wept. The pain of these men and women for whom Jesus died was palpable and heartbreaking. Could it be that we have been misinterpreting Scripture when it comes to their salvation? Could it be that there is some new understanding of the Bible that would allow us to affirm committed, same-sex relationships? Is that the good news of the gospel? A spate of books and videos and article and blogs would tell us that, indeed, that is not the gospel and that the good news of Jesus is that you can follow Him and enjoy a committed, homosexual relationship too.
Can you be gay and Christian? Is it a sin to be gay? How do you live life without sex? How do I support my same-sex attracted Christian friend/family member?.

LGBT people of faith caught in the crossfire between two communities | Letter
I am a Christian. I was raised in a Christian home, my father was a pastor. I was taught to love the Lord and to serve Him.
The words "gay" and "Christian" are not often used in the same sentence. Hateful speech disguised under the language of salvation has reined church services that are entirely dedicated to condemn homosexuality. Does it not defy the essence of God, who is an all-mighty being of unconditional love and acceptance? Perhaps those references in the Bible has been misinterpreted and taken out of context. Besides, are we really supposed to literally take in everything the Bible says to heart? After all, the Bible was not actually written by God, but rather by his followers and their interpretation of his word.
