I was brought up in an evangelical church and household. I remember a lot of the their teachings. I am also very familiar with the Bible. I don't believe that homosexuality is a sin, but if the want to that's fine with me. However, I do remember that there are no big sins or small sins. In God's eyes, all sins are equal. In God's eyes, lying about how much you contributed to a political cause is as big a sin as murder. However, judging my the amount of time that all these religions spend working against us, I suspect that they have received word from God that homosexuality has been given a special place in the list of sins.

As long as I have my soapbox out, there's something else really bugging me. There are children in this world dying of starvation. All that money that the churches poured into Proposition (H)8, could have gone a long way in fighting hunger in the world. Have they no priorities? Nevermind, I do know the answer.

That was an incredibly moving look into what ex-gay ministries really do to people. And the conclusion, can you be gay and Christian... it's deeply saddening that we even have to ask ourselves that question.
