I'm one of the very few members here lucky enough to have been trusted by Darth with her life story. It isn't pretty.
Darth like other gay friends I have, have suffered for love and through "Christian beliefs" of homosexuality being an abomination.
The fact (for me at least) is that we are born, we grow, and we form, eventually, our own belief system.
I have mine, as do you all,
In mine the most important thing is love regardless of sexuality, I know a gay couple that live just over the road from me, they have a daughter,
(IVF) and they are better parents than most of the heterosexual couples around here.
That young lady is loved and guided in a positive way and is as sharp as a pin.
The trouble with forums like this is assumptions are made
Many on ATS for example think I'm Jewish,
I'm not, I was born a Christian and turned my back on religion years ago for my own personal reasons.
Funny old world isn't it ?
Personally I feel no need to apologise for past bigotry, that was a younger less informed and less tolerant me, but I believed at the time and acted
Who knows ? In another 20 years what my belief system will be ?
But rest assured I won't be apologising for my beliefs today.
Just a thought
