Dear Jesus

My faith was always important to me when I was younger. As I got older I started having issues within myself, the issue of being a lesbian. I say it was an issue becuase I had a very difficult time trying to find a balance between my faith and my orientation. It’s a scary thing because in most religions, if not all, being a ‘mo is a hell worthy lifestyle and that’s one place I never want to visit after I die.

By the time I was sixteen I knew my preference was women but I still had this issue clawing at me about religion. One day I had finally came to an understanding with myself. The religion will not get you anywhere, but the faith will guide you no matter what. Jesus does love all people and who I am hurts no one. All the people that protest have issues already and chances are they have done worse things in their lives (wife beating, drinking until blacking out) then I ever have.

The great thing is I am sitting down to write this on Easter Sunday 2010. I also came out to my mom on a Sunday afternoon when we got home from Church. I am still here, God didn’t send a bolt of lighting to attack me, so that must be a good sign. I am a Lesbian, and I do believe in God.

  • Faith

    Many faiths espouse values such as commitment to social justice, love and acceptance. But unfortunately, some also use their doctrines and guidebooks to attack, condemn and discriminate against gay and transgender people.
