I have been going to church and involved in Bible study for over a year now. After some consideration–and really trying–I’ve decided Christianity is not for me. My counselor agrees that I shouldn’t delve too deeply into it, too. There’s a fine line between craziness and spirituality. I don’t want to blur those lines, wherever … Read moreBye, Bye, Christianity.
Since coming out as a Christian, I’ve had people ask me, “What’s changed?” Do I still support gay rights? Am I all about sexual modesty now? Well, here’s the answer. My belief is that there is a God.
