“The greater the gap between the person they think you are and the person you actually are the greater will be your anxiety, depression, feelings of shame, and guilt.” These words spoken by one of the most famous American women of my adolescent years, Monica Lewinski, have been rolling around in my mind lately.

There are gay Christians out there. They are actually Christians who read the whole Bible and pray and practice spiritual disciplines. There are people who take the Bible pretty seriously and support gay relationships (committed, monogamous gay relationships usually) . Gay Christians aren’t dancing around naked wearing beads and holding a Bible that consists of 2 verses. I had no idea. What can I say, I live in really conservative circles. No one talks about gay Christians and when they do they portray them as the antichrist – evil people who have completely turned the Bible on end to suit their own purposes. That’s what I thought when I first saw this post. The image I had in my head involved snapshots I’ve seen from pride parades plus tacky crosses. I didn’t read the post for a while, but finally my curiosity got the best of me.
