My Stand on Religion

My blogger friend, May, asked this question in my previous post:

"just that you are totally at peace with who you are, what is your religious stand on being gay?"

I think it's pretty clear what the Bible says about the "defining act" of being gay. It's stated in black and white in Leviticus 18:22. I was brought up in a religious family and I don't have any doubt that same-sex sex is a sin. Being gay doesn't necessarily mean you have to have sex just as being straight doesn't. Spiritually it's a struggle but I'm not lying to myself. Being gay is NOT a sin but the ACT of being gay is.

Personally I believe that many people twist the meaning of what's clearly stated in the Bible so that they can appease their conscience.

For example: the Bible says,

"Remember the Sabbath day to keep it hold, 6 days shalt thou labor and do all thy work but the 7th day is the Sabbath of thy Lord thy God... Exodus 20:8-10"

So people made Monday the 1st day of the week (look at the calendars) so that Sunday would be the 7th day (church day). But Matthew 28, Luke 24, and John 20 clearly say that Jesus was ressurected on the 1st day... and isn't that day called EASTER SUNDAY? So if Jesus was resurrected Sunday, which the Bible says is the 1st day, it can't be the 7th day, too (when we should be in church), can it?

PS: DayByDay4-2Day, I still can't decide which of them is the most fabulous. Hehehehe
