You folks on the left need to face the fact that many of your fellow travelers from the black and Hispanic communities are far less accepting of your homosexuality than is the general public.<quoted text>
One of the things you need to work on is your spelling. This sh!t is not easy to read.
Living a lie would be living in the closet. So there goes your little theory.
I am not living a lie, I am not living in sin, I am not broadcasting my deficiencies. Being gay is not a deficiency, so that doesn't even make sense.
It's not my job to explain religion in general or my religion to you. That's your spiritual journey and that's between you and God. You don't know enough to tell me I am contradicting God. I am obviously further along on that spiritual journey than you. I take no credit for that. It's just our respective paths. But when you move forward, it's easier to recognize people who are now where you once were.
I'm not kidding. Pray on it. For a long time. I already did, a lot more than you. I'm the expert. You're not.
By the way, do you think punishments only come after death? I see most people who live against God tend to have a fairly steady punishment throughout their life.
So where is my punishment? I have no complaints in my life (save this one against the government.) That's how it is when you live your life in tune with God. You, on the other hand, worship an idol and call it 'the bible.'
The proof is in the pudding. If I was doing something wrong, I would know it. I don't do wrong things. God gave me a very strong conscience and I learned very young I feel strong regret if I do something wrong - like when I tried to date girls. That was wrong. I felt very guilty because I knew deep down I was deceiving them, and using them as an experiment to "make sure." THAT was wrong, and for that, I apologized to God.
The other thing I apologized to God for, about 16 years ago, was for the gap in my faith that prevented me from trusting Him making me gay. That was wrong. That was my human weakness, listening to The World and not trusting God. God will not give you more than you can handle. God made me gay. Therefore, I can handle it.
When you pray for something for 12 years and there is no movement on it in any way - while your other prayers are answered one way or another - you have to ask yourself why. Why did God choose not to make me straight? I was celibate, I was a freaking angel, I prayed every day, etc. etc. yet God did not answer that prayer. At some point you have to realize there is a reason He is not answering that prayer: because He knows better. We don't have to understand. We just have to have faith in His wisdom.
God can change a monkey into a horse, too. But no matter how much you pray over that monkey, it's not going to happen. He had his reason for making that monkey.
In fact, Proposition 8 passed in California because of strong support from those communities.
