I wonder how you react to you own homosexual feelings if you Christian? (whoever Catholic, Orthodox or Protestant)?

I'm feel that 100% im gay i just not acting on that feeling, anyway i'm so fat that no guy or girl would provably want me xD

But i'm upset when sometime i feel sexual feeling when i see some good looking guys :-(

BTW i feel that relationship between two guys whoever sexual or not are far more simpler than those one between male and female, because woman usually want something in return :-(
And bond between males are more stronger and based on friendship.

In the United States, many Christian churches and religions are LGBT-friendly, while some aren't. Many Roman Catholic and most Episcopal churches welcome everyone including LGBT individuals. Even the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) welcomes LGBT members, but with the condition that they may not marry and must be celebate if not married. There are several LGBT-specific churches, too. But, many LGBT Americans appear to avoid religion in their lives. So, those who are religious can be especially friendly to others.

In my experience, I have found gay relationships to be very similar to straight relationships.

There are men who are into other men because of money, for example.

I don't find man-on-man relationships to be any "deeper" than ones between men and women.

Safe stuff happens.....

I don't see how you could accept a god that is flat out against you. It's listed many times in Christian and Catholic beliefs that being gay is a sin. Hell I'm pretty sure it says in the Bible that black people were deformed versions of God's creations. That's pretty messed up.

I used to be a Christian, but it caused too much cognitive dissonance. That was only partly related to my sexuality. I still disliked my sexuality for years after losing my faith, but I blame my religious upbringing partly for that internalised homophobia.

I used to be fat, btw. I met my love while still fat. Don't give up on yourself. I also used to get upset about having sexual feelings.

Same sex relationships (sexual or otherwise) are different, I find, but not necessarily harder or easier. The friendship bond (the whole 'partners in crime' thing) is stronger, and at times, it's more fun because you simply 'get' each other better. With the right person, it's like playing with your best friend from school, and you can be totally immature and just be yourself. With the opposite sex, it's like you have to translate your feelings and experiences before relating them.

Then again, same sex relationships have the downside that you feel the other's misfortunes more keenly, and you often share some of the same neuroses. I have a friend who drives me mad with this. Plus, society doesn't recognise it as much.

Straight relationships have the benefit of giving you the perspective of the opposite sex. There are more uncharted waters to explore. Same sex relationships can get more claustrophobic more quickly.

But it's all tricky. And wonderful.

Your sexual identity is who you are and you should not belong to any religion that does not accept you as you are or lays a guilt trip on you for being yourself.

I'm not religious, but I appreciate many religious values. I'm especially a big fan of Jesus.
It seems to me though, that too many christians are too unlike their christ. Jesus preached love and understanding for all, and I strongly doubt that he would have anything against gay people. Still, people focus way too much on the stuff that you can and can't do, and way too little on the "love thy neighbour"-part.
I think that a lot of people forget that the bible was written by humans. And humans have their faults, and they like to tell others that their values are the right ones. (I mean look at me, I'm doing it right now! Even if I'm just trying to be nice, I'm still pushing an agenda!)
The basic message of almost every religion is to be nice to one another. I don't think a loving god would require a big rule-book just to let people know that they should be nice. Besides, it's very strange how some rules (like the gay one) seems very important, while others (like the one with shrimp, or slavery, or two materials in one piece of fabric) are completely ignored.
If people can pick and choose what rules apply to them, they're obviously not that important.

If God created you, then you are perfect as you are. Especially since sexuality has nothing to do with the free will.
No good God would create you in a certain way and then blame you for it.
