Okay, I will get right to the point, I have read and seen a number of discussions about gays ( and I actually mean the whole GLBT community I suppose) on the net. Now, let’s take an example of someone we all probably know of, Dan Savage, Gay and an Atheist.
See, this is the thing, so often we may encounter a person and so often it comes to “I’m gay and I’m an Atheist”. This sort of bothers me. To me, it seems a number of homosexuals may reject the Bible or the Church because it seems they see the Bible and the Church in general rejecting their lifestyle or what a “Gay” person thinks is a rejection of their natural makeup. And if I were in their shoes, I might think the same way.
That’s it basically, I know there are a number of Churches that raise the rainbow flag. Still, maybe I have only read “activists” opinions on this issue but I would hope they would see that Christ came for all of us. I don’t think I have seen a group with so many atheists in their numbers. It bothers me some because most “Gays” one encounters are generally amiable and very kind persons.
It’s a classic sticking point.
Discussion is welcome.
