Yo my buddy, my pal.

Gay af Christian right here and I assume you're referring to the World Famous Super Duper Relevant Always Used Anti-Gay Leviticus Passage.

Well, many Christians will argue that it refers to the Old Purity Laws of Moses™ or something along those lines. According to Paul in the New Testament, Christians are no longer bound under those purity laws. So, technically, according to the word of Paul, the gay being stoned thing isn't valid anymore. Anyway, that's an obnoxious fundamentalist approach to the Word. Many denominations say you can interpret the Bible metaphorically/not literally you can say that gay is still a sin by that logic, but whatever the hell idc that other people want to be homophobic twats. They can do that, but they can't get in the way of me and my Jesus

Also, I believe you don't quite understand what the Bible is. It's not just a big fucking rule book written by one guy at one time for one audience. It's several different books of different genres, authors, time eras, and audiences. It's a guidebook, a prayer book, a story book, to an extent, a rule book. Much of it is God's word. But sadly, it's God's word written through humans, who are imperfect and can make mistakes. The Bible is not black and white, it's several shades of gray.

Even if you understand this about the Bible, Holy Haystack of Hell, Christianity is way more complex than following a fucking book. It doesn't even center around the Bible for Christ's Sake (Lord's name surprisingly not used in vain here). It centers around JESUS CHRIST. GOD... Save us, people are thinking that CHRISTianty is about some fucking old-ass mess of a book (not disrespecting your word, God, but lets be honest it is old and it is a mess). Jesus never even said, "Hey ya'll, here's a book I made with my own two hands, now follow every single fucking rule down here." It says that nowhere in the Bible even.

There's a lot of tradition, spirituality, culture, and history that you have to consider when thinking about Christianity. And agreeing with every single part of the Bible, from my objective understanding of Christianity, does not make one a Christian. What makes one a Christian is basically believing in One God in three Divine Persons and the Second Person of God, known as God the Son (Son of God to some) had been incarnated as man named Y'shua Bar-Joseph of Nazareth (Jesus in English) in AD. 0-33 roughly and came down to give his life for the reparation of the sins of humanity and/or to pay humanity's way back into heaven. Who later resurrected himself from the dead into a glorified body to prove he was actually God not just a radical human. And Christians believe that this man is God and worship him in his glory. Something along those lines. The details vary from denomination to denomination, but that's the jist of it. The Bible has little to do with this whole Jesus-save-our-lives-let-us-worship-his-beautyiful-soul message of Christianity. (idk, i grew up Catholic so I don't know jack shit about the Bible)

Now, I don't know you very well at all. I don't know how much you know about Christianity or Christian Gays. I'm just gathering some scraps of information about what you've said in the comments, and from what I can see, you don't seem to understand it very well. I absolutely am not forcing you to be a Christian nor am I saying it's a perfect religion or some shit. You're probably even a wonderful, kind, interesting person in real life. I'm just saying LET GAYS LOVE JESUS. LET THEM. GAY & CHRISTIAN IS NOT AN OXYMORON. CHRISTIANITY & THE BIBLE ARE NOT BLACK & WHITE. 

also sorry for my seemingly hypocritical language, this is just how I speak the best. And anyway I want my apologetics to at least be a little entertaining. i hate all this boring-ass professionalism when people try to explain shit

Actually Christianity does center around the bible. Because that supposedly tells the story of how Jesus "died for our sins" and how our universe came to be. No it's not gods word. If it was gods word it wouldn't have so many inconsistencies and logical fallacy's in it. If god is truly all powerful why would he need humans to write the book for him? Why would he need you to speak for him?  The fact you need to do so much rationalizing to try and say the bible isn't bad just proves how flawed it is. There's way more horrible stuff in the bible that doesn't involve gays too. Did you know the bible supports slavery and sexism? I've read the bible before. I used to be a evangelical christian until I actually read the bible and realized I was lied to my entire life.

Okay, I'll admit, you make some good points. But Christianity centering around the Bible is still a flawed understanding of it. Even though it does recall the stories that make up a lot of Christian beliefs, it still isn't perfect nor the center of Christianity. Saying that is like saying that Early Christianity wasn't valid as Christian Religion. They had no Bible, as we understand it, whatsoever.

God is all powerful, but he didn't write the Bible physically himself because maybe, just maybe, it's not as necessary as people think it is. Some lovely fellows back hundreds of years decided to bind up a bunch of pre-Christian books along with some eyewitness/almost eyewitness accounts of the life of Christ and letters written by Paul to create the largest fucking mess of an anthology. The Bible is the the secondhand word of God/recorded first hand word of God. God doesn't speak in one way, he speaks in several ways. The Bible is a supplement. Not the be all and end all of Christianity.

Of course I didn't grow up Evangelical. But my understanding is that they take a fundamentalist, literal approach to the Bible. It IS the be all and end all. But many denominations, including my own, don't have that mindset. Instead of considering Historical context, human error, differences in style, education, possible figurative language, and the tradition that was around at the time and what still effects Christianity today.

I've struggled with my faith as well since I realized I was gay, but I have found comfort in Christianity and Jesus. I may not share the same view as you, but I hope you still find peace and happiness in your beliefs.

Well I'm bisexual so I know how you feel about struggling with your faith. But when the bible that is supposedly the word of the god you worship says that doing what makes you happy is an abomination. I think it might be time to leave your faith. I know you find comfort in faith, but it sounds to me like the same sort of faith a 6 year old would have in Santa Clause. Not trying to insult you, but having blind faith in anything is never good.

Thank you so much for comparing my Faith which I've studied, considered, and thoroughly discussed to a childish belief in Santa Claus. Thank you so much for letting me know that despite my extensive study and thought, my faith in God is still blind. I know you're not trying to insult me, but I still feel a bit offended. The Bible is in fact a too shakey a foundation to base my Entire Faith on. And I don't. It's the deformed and erroneous translation of God's word. It's NOT my whole faith. (I grew up Catholic, and if there's one thing I learned it's that).

You know what? It would be way easier to leave Christianity and just live on as a Theist/Agnostic. But then I'll lose my Jesus, someone I've come to know, understand, and love through prayer and study. Someone who, I know in my heart, will never leave me and loves me back, despite the mess of a book that came with the religion. I know that sounds corny, maybe a bit childish, but its what I've known to be true.

It's a personal relationship with God. Not an objective follow the rules be good and don't do bad because God will punish you. No. It's personal. We try not to sin not because we fear punishment, but because we love God. We hate upsetting him, hurting him. I mean wouldn't you try to avoid upsetting or hurting a good friend? When you look and like that, lines are blurred but the picture is clearer.

I've considered agnosticism and atheism before, but they haven't fulfilled me. They haven't made me feel worthwhile or important or beautiful. They haven't given me such a close relationship with my creator. Nor did their logic match up with all the personal research I've done. However, that's another thing for another day.

This religion of mine gives me hope. Gives me grounding. Gives me spiritual enlightenment. Makes me WANT to live, to love. Makes me appreciate everything I have, including my suffering. So if I lose it, I would lose so much that I have gained. So what if I sound dependent on it? I'm not the greatest thing, I'm not completely independent. I'm a human being. But, I am independent enough to choose to be dependent on Jesus. I don't have to, but I do anyway. Because the most whole I've ever felt is when I lived through him, with him, and in him.

There are many Christian denominations that accept LGBT people as children of God. Even ones that recognize and perform gay marriages. Maybe you're right to an extent, maybe its time for me to switch. But not whole belief systems, maybe just the denomination I hail from.

Please try to understand. My Faith and God are precious to me. It is a grace I'm so happy to have. And you know what, one day I'll probably find a lady who loves God as much as I do and we'll grow together as in grace, in our own way, in the way we feel God is calling us. As lesbians, walking in God's light.

I hope you find happiness wherever you end up.

Have you ever been gay? It's so strange how those feelings I fake so often are out of my control and weaved into me by my creator. I know you must know perfectly well that all Christian gay/bi/trans individuals, made in the image and likeness of God, are pretending to be Christians or gay or shit. Because you, yourself, have experienced being a Gay/Bi/Trans Christian first hand.

-You know that feeling of being unwanted and repulsed by your own community in Christ
-You know that feeling where the instituted theology makes you feel worthless and disordered
-You know so well the struggle of finding a romantic partner who shares your love of Jesus and accepts you and your gender/orientation
-You UNDERSTAND having to hide your feelings from your family and sometimes lie down in your room and cry about feeling like you lie all the time about who you are to please your parents
-You have felt that giant reluctance when LGBT people experience violence to ask your family to pray for them and their families because well then they might find out your gay and hurt you
-You understand the feeling of isolation when you attend church
-You probably have experienced all the struggles of being a gay/bi/trans Christian in today's society because after all...

YOU ARE ONE RIGHT? You must of course be one to speak with such bold authority on those people who are LGBT and Christian. You must be to claim that at the end of the day we're not Christian or Gay. That everything we've experienced. All the suffering we've offered to God in communion with his Sacrifice on the Cross for the reparation of sins and for the aid of others like us is all in vain? A figment of our disordered imaginations? That we're not REALLY Christian, right? Because you know. You definitely know.

If we are pretending to be Christians, why the FUCK are we still here? Why the FUCK didn't we just leave this god-forsaken religion whose members constantly condemn us and call us trash? After all it's easier right? Simpler right? No more strings to pull, no more Bible apologetic to weave through in an attempt to explain why your not filth in the sight of God, no more toxic communities, right? Sorry, that's not the way it works. I'm not bailing out on Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior because it's too hard. I'm not bailing out on God because I don't like the way some people interpret his intentions. Jesus never fucking left me, so I'm not gonna fucking leave him. He's my best friend for literally forever and you can't tell me he's not. You're talking like being a gay Christian is some easy-ass walk in the park. When it's a daily struggle that only constant prayers and an anonymous social media outlet has so far gotten me through. 

If we are pretending to be gay, why the FUCK don't we just stop? Why the FUCK don't we just be straight and leave all this god-forsaken oppression behind us and be free? We're doing this for social justice points right? We're just doing this because we want to feel special right?We're just doing this to feel hated by our parents and our religious community? Were just doing this because we want to be denied rights to jobs and healthcare and marriage because we're "sinful"? But sorry, that's not the way it works. I know first hand. It's been hard to accept that I like girls, I've had to struggle a lot with my sexual identity in the past year. It's caused me a lot of confusion, toil, grief, and despair. And I know it will bring me suffering in the future which I will try my best to offer to God so that He can turn it into a grace for someone else. But of course, that's all fake correct? I'm just some idiot pretending to be a Christian Lesbian!

Of course, I don't know you. You're probably a nice guy and a real charmer. And of course you are made in the image and likeness of God. And I respect and love you. But you must understand, (despite my sarcastic irony),  you have not been where I have been in this regard. You do not understand this deep struggle within myself. I don't know everything, but all this above comes from my own experience, in my life. And it hurts a lot.

Please try to understand:

It'd be great to be straight. But God made me Gay, and I love that part anyway.

No, it's not. I'm Episcopalian, and we believe that LGBT people are children of God, too, and he doesn't care about their sexuality or gender and he loves them the same as everyone else. This IS a real branch of Christianity, and if you don't believe that then you don't know much about Christians, do you?
