Christianity and Homosexuality..

I have been asking myself lately, 'do I want to live in the life of God?' and all the time the answer is not clear because I find all the negative thoughts from Christians and all the negativity in the bible. I mean, I don't want to be hated by someone who may or may not really exist. I just think.. Don't you want to at least try to live in the life of god? So I told myself I would give it a try. But it didn't seem to work because all the negativity from the bible kept coming to my mind. And i'm definitely not going to change my sexuality because of my choice of religion. I finally come to conclusion of what I am and I just want to be loved for who I am and if someone doesn't like me because i'm gay or bi then I don't really care. I mean don't get me wrong. Its a hell of a hard process 'coming out and all' but in the end its worth it and makes life a lot more easier. So I guess your wondering what i'm trying to say. Well i'm trying to ask you for your opinion. Is there something wrong with being Christian and Gay?
Thanks and you guys i'm sorry I haven't been on in a long time. I've been having a rough one. Anyway take care and hope all of you are doing good.

I couldn't do it

I gave up on Christianity a long time ago. I had so many problems with self mutilation and depression because I hated who i was. All of those problems were because of religion's lies about how i was going to burn in hell and no matter how much I hated myself I couldn't do anything to get rid of my "Sin". Once I was able to get all of their brainwashing out of my head and realised it was all nonsense those problems went away.

Eh...

I'm not a big fan of organized religion, though I love exploring spirituality.

I don't think the doctrine itself is really anti-gay (of course, i also don't think it's the word of God, so I'm not bothered either way).

I mean, the biggest anti-gay passage in the Bible is Leviticus, which also condemns people who eat shellfish and wear clothing made of more than one type of fiber?! So, logic would tell you this is an outdated crazy passage, but somehow shrimp-eating, poly-cotton blend robe-wearing priests somehow cherry-pick the stuff out that is the word of God and the other stuff is just outdated and ignored?

I think the challenge for people is to integrate their spirituality with their sexuality, if that is something they desire. The problem is that people equate religion with spirituality.

Sin is just advertising for the church. It's their only play. You watch TV and need a bigger car, nicer clothes, bigger dick, hotter partner, better sound system, etc. And religion is a business, too, and their catch is sin. If you always have sin, you always need them to help you get rid of it. It's still marketing, though. If you were made in God's image, why are you so flawed? I never could figure that one out.

Personally, I think the best thing going right now, is the Oprah Winfrey/Eckhart Tolle online class. Check it out, you can download the audio or video free off of iTunes. It is amazing stuff. It gives you a lens through which you can incorporate religion more easily or live life without it, but such good stuff.
