Though it may not seem so, I believe the central goal of all relgions is the same.This goal is to have an experience that proves man is divine,
whether you see (lets say God or soul) outside or inside it is to prove that divinity is a certain reality, and that you want to continue life as a
reflection of that reality. The laws or practices of each sect are to serve its members to achieve this goal of divine realization. I dont know, but
those laws against being gay can be motivated by human intentions or as a divine rule to teach that homosexuality is infact an impediment to
I have read (under the pre-tense of reincarnation)that a male oriented spirit may create itself a female body to learn specific lessons (and
vise-versa), this could explain why some gays are repulsed by members of the opposite sex. That statement is obviously controversial, simillar to the
idea that people born into lives of suffering might deserve it. I dont believe in those myself, but I dont entirely dismiss this human experience
could work in those ways. I dont know the feeling of being gay, nor the stress of orientating myself in a world that is only slowly growing to accept
me. So finding a church for you is much more than just god talk.
Churches and religions serve to the human experience of community, there is a practical need to find a community that will accept you. But this
experience of community can often take over that central goal of divine realization.
This Parable from the Bible seems sort of relevant
The Parable of the Seven Brothers
Matthew 22:23-33 That same day the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question. 24 “Teacher,” they said, “Moses
told us that if a man dies without having children, his brother must marry the widow and have children for him. 25 Now there were seven brothers among
us. The first one married and died, and since he had no children, he left his wife to his brother. 26 The same thing happened to the second and third
brother, right on down to the seventh.27 Finally, the woman died. 28 Now then, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all
of them were married to her?” 29 Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. 30 At the
resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. 31 But about the resurrection of the
dead—have you not read what God said to you, 32 ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? He is not the God of the dead
but of the living.”
I believe Jesus is pointing to the fact that we are divine beings, and that this thought of marriage, even gender, are not really a reflection of our
divinity, and wont really matter in whatever there is after this human experience.
So yeah gay or straight you and all of us are as the angels are, divine, let that truth be the root of your search for a suitable institution.
In pure practical thought, the most accepting 'religion' I think you will find is buddhism. Or a new age branch of hinduism.
The best of luck!!
