Thomas: You most certainly put alot of thought into your post. I am not gay but in my opinion religion and homosexuality can not go together. The Bible clearly states it's views on the subject. But then I think all religions pick and choose what they will or will not abide by. They all seem to have their dos and don'ts. There is just so much to go into here that it almost seems impossible to fathom all the facts or teachings. I guess it all boils down to each person following their heart, if you have to give up the Bible then so be it. As far as organized religion, well, who knows. You are being true to yourself and that's the main thing. Hope this forum picks up in activity for you, it is getting off to a slow start but if we don't keep posting it will never get on it's way. The best to you all out there. LOVE.
