After a really intense conversation with DH a few nights ago, I decided to pose the discussion to BH to see if I'm the only one.
I am a Christian woman who supports gay marriage. I was born and raised in a Lutheran family and will have my beliefs till the day I die. I was taught indirectly that homosexuality is a 'sin'. I have lots of gay friends and I believe also that if they want to get married, they should be allowed to.
My discussion with DH involved the argument that no sin is any worse than another in the eyes of God. So basically to him, homosexuality is no worse than telling a little white lie (we all do it)!
Dh is currently completely sitting on the fence with the issue but I have fallen off one side. I'm not ready to go announcing my beliefs to friends and family but they're there. I'm not ready to have the chat with people I know and love that disagree with it because I am expected to be against it. Maybe I'll get there someday.
Anyway, people who know me know I'm religious and I know that when I first met a few of my gay friends, they automatically assumed I didn't support their lifestyle just because I went to church. Is anyone else in my position? I could go on but this is getting long...
I don't mean to offend anyone, I know this could potentially be quite controversial. I just feel like the world is changing and we should be able to discuss these things without being judged.
