@fausto3000: I agree with you Fausto3000 that being a Christian does not have to cause a gay to have challenges about who he is. At least this is what I think you are saying. However, I also must agree with Merv. I am a Mental Health Doctor and I deal with lots of Christians, Muslims and others who hate themselves as gays, because of their religious beliefs. Even those who do not hate themselves struggle with depression and other severe mood and anxiety issues because of the rejection they feel and the need to hide who they are. Mental health and homosexuality is a reality that we must deal with and not scuff at. I read many of the various posts here, and genuinely feel sorry for the individuals writing them as they have so much hate and aggression, that they have to be negative no matter what.
