Religious people need to stop telling others that gay people are going to hell! It's not safe for anybody to believe so. Growing up with a devout Christian family I would hear many of these sermons as a child. I knew I was gay at a young age so the sermons would really affect me mentally. I remember crying out to God asking to take it away and I later began to intentionally harm myself in my middle school years. It wasn't until sophomore year of highschool I began to love myself for who I am. However, some people don't get that revelation and they really hurt themselves resulting in death or perminate injuries. If you are gay and unsure of yourself...it's ok you are NOT alone. You are a strong person and are loved because of it. Share the love guys :)

Dude, really who cares if your gay. I dont think thats an issue for people in society today. Unless u live in the deep country where they r very backwards. Most people coming from that demographic usually move anyway. As far as people and their religious hangups just stay away from them or let them know u think they should mind their own business. Move to a bigger city, usually more pockets of that lifestyle there. And usually more tolerance. I use to live in LA and had to take the Metro thru Compton, scared sheetless at first from the reputation and sometimes gang members even on the Metro. But, in the bigger cities people arnet as bored as smaller towns. Where it seems like most have nothing better to do than persecute others for what ever reason they think they are better. Bigger cities you find people more content with their own lives and too many people that they dont care and most have seen it all there. Most in this town seem they are better than others if their family makes 15k more than another. Funny thing is when u point a finger at someone usually 3 point back at you.

Good Luck

Oh ya, the gang members were minding their own business on the Metro and never any trouble. Never saw gay bashing etc or anything remotely indicating intolerance for any perspective of lifestyle....

And actually the mentality is alot more comfortable, even the dumb people there acted smarter than alot of the yahoo's here. Alot of these people here have too many hang ups and cant survive outside this enviroment. Its kinda funny to watch them. But any who. Dont let BASTARDS grind u down. If thats your thing live your life, its yours.

No one is better than anyone else. Its usually the finger pointers who have found a safe place to point fingers. Its kinda a defense mechanism for them. Ask em whats in your closet. haha. that would be a good one...

If you are religious, and belicve in what you are taught. You have to accept and belive that every Homosexual whne they die if they don't repent will spend eternity in the Lake Fires of Hell! Period , whether they are related to you or not!

That's horrible. You don't have to accept what you are taught.

I can tell you first hand that it's still everywhere and I experience it EVERYDAY. The intolerance is strong everywhere. I recently was talking to a group of guys and they began talking about if they had a gay roomate. Their comments were disturbing. That's actually why I posted this little rant on here

"going to hell" refers to your life here when you grow older if you stray from the teachings you will bring negative emotion and experiences in your life.

The people who wrote it must of notice the troubles gays will experience for the to condemn it

Actually u r correct on your notion of Made in the Image and By GOD. But, he gave us free will, instead of the angels who were GODS pre made creature who were not given the choice to make their decisions, and were held to strict obedience to GOD. After the rebellion with GOD and Lucifer and his 1/3 of rebellious angels were cast to the earth out of Heaven. GOD wanted another creation, something that had the choice to LOVE HIM and seek HIM, or to ignore and question and doubt HIS LOVE. Or just plain not accept his plan for a family. After the rebellion in Heaven Lucifer in his even more infurious contempt for GOD said and vowed to turn these new creations of GOD against him and tempt them away from GOD thru disbelief and the enticement of sin. So u might not even know that u have been swayed or a lesser target for Lucifer and his minions, because u are actually misinformed or swayed in your own beliefs. This is the choice you had been given just like the rest of us Humans. Not blaming u just dropping a little Knowledge.
And as far as science proving anything about homosexuality as being genetic. Science is man's attempt to understand in his own understanding of the cosmos and GOD's creation. I am assuming that this is a very minuet of understanding if at all. We have learned alot through science from bettering health care and creating machines etc. But, remember science is based on hypothesis and those hypothesis then become theories which are only 99.99% valid until another hypothesis and then theory comes along by man's feeble attempts to understand what he did not create and has absolutely no control over. We all age and we all leave this earth, everyone does. No one is getting out of here alive. And after that no ones theories or hypothesis are going to make a difference because we are going to see the ONE(1) who created us.
Who knows u might get a chance to ask questions or be enlightened. U might not
