    I read your story str8 and I'm sorry you went through that. You're livin in Sydney now? Pooftah capital of Austtralia! Sorry, just saw Wolf Creek.

    I can relate to the anguish of reconciling your romantic feelings in a religion that has so much hatred and doesnt really accept the idea of love, or loving another person.

    I hope your family lets go of the BS and realizes Christ didn't die for their bigotry. It gets better the longer you are out of that religion.

    Welcome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just sorry it took you so long! I will have to explain more later, but to try and explain to some (worldly) others what is like it to come out of the closet as an apostate, I had to make them understand what is might be like for a gay to come up in an environment where EVERYONE they knew would turn anainst them. You have made it through both worst case scenarios.................and GOOD LUCK on your new life............oompa

    btw.........my sister is a married gay

    To the board,

    Thank you for your story, its unfortunate that ingrained witnesses really have no clue as to what gay really means or how you feel. They

    only condemn.

    Str8?, welcome to JWD, glad you found us.

    every so often, I really want to have the assuredness of knowing my Mum would stop and hug me if she saw me in the street.

    From someone who is old enough to be your mum, it's hard to believe that she wouldn't hug you. I am sure she would want to. Unfortunately, JWs have what they call a "bible trained conscience." This causes them to behave in ways which are unnatural and unChrist-like.

    I'm old enough to be your big sister, so if you're ever in Ohio in the USA, I'll give you a BIG HUG!
