Several months ago, one of my friends "came out of the closet" and said he was gay, which has led to some moments of awkward silence between the two of us. This is because while he is one of the most devout non-denominational evangelical-like Christians that I know (and we both share a love of pro-life conservative politics), he also knows that I'm concerned about what I consider to be his sin (he has been actively seeking same-sex dating/romances since).
Having said that, I'm not really sure what to do since I have struggled with similar problems myself (even though I support Church teaching -- please don't jump on me!
), so I'm not sure I'm in the best position to say anything on the matter of same-sex attraction and Christianity (even though his church does sell books promoting traditional marriage). Indeed, I do know that we both still need to treasure our friendship based on our common ideals, but at the same time, my soul is uneasy about this.
