I just read an article about Ian McKellen speaking to those who are in the closet, and he was talking about his own experience as a gay man, in the most profound manner. In fact, it gave me joy to see him take such pride in himself like that and to stand up for the outcasts in the community.
I firmly believe Christianity to be the only true faith, and I understand in Christianity that sex is reserved for marriage, and that marriage is a bond between a man and a woman. The only moments when homosexuality is referenced or alluded to, it is not endorsed. I want to be able to find a way to reconcile everybody to the Church. Sometimes it hurts me to tell somebody that I cannot endorse their relationship because it’s with somebody of the same sex. It makes me look back to the homophobia that I’ve encountered in my life, and it mainly came from making fun of a guy because he was like a girl, in the way he acted and in his sexual preferences. Only in one occasion did I hear the “Bible says so” justification.
What should I do?
