Christianity and homosexuality are not mutually exclusive. Different congregations may have different ideas etc, but there are many in the LGBT community that are Christian and attend services where they are welcomed. I am not gay myself, but I would not be a member of any church that would not honor gay marriage etc. I am also very much pro-choice, don’t believe in abstinence, am a scientist that is a firm believer in the theory of evolution and I don’t consider myself to be a ‘bad’ christian for having these values.

The representation of Christianity in the media today lumps regular, liberal people like myself into the flag waving, speaking in tongues rabble that give us as much a bad name as islamic terrorists give the average muslim. It’s just really tiring having to hastily explain that I’m not a fucking Westboro baptist everytime someone finds out that I go to church.
