"Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up; doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth." 1 Cor 13:4-7 21st Century KJV

"Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not want what belongs to others. It does not brag. It is not proud. It is not rude. It does not look out for its own interests. It does not easily become angry. It does not keep track of other people's wrongs. Love is not happy with evil. But it is full of joy when the truth is spoken. It always protects. It always trusts. It always hopes. It never gives up. Love never fails." 1 Cor 13:4-7 NIRV

Bless you, Markus. I was told by a friend today at FinnFest that many of your readers are lashing out at you. It is alarming and sad to read their posts.

Please don't be discouraged. You are a beloved child of God. Your life is a great gift. Be strong. In being yourself you give others permission to be themselves, and for many that is a freedom to frightening to be borne.

But for others, and you may never know who, you are opening their wings to the Wind of the Spirit.

Perfect love casts out all fear.

So far, I've read all you have written here, and I can't find anything you've said that makes me think you are gay, except that you say you are.

So far, I've found your postings to be very loving and never attacking, never accusatory. Unlike some of your respondents.

Do you feel free to tell us how you define "gay" and how that applies to you?

Is it because you are very close friends with other men, and share your deepest thoughts with them? That's not gay, to me.

Is it because you have a roommate? Nope, that isn't gay in my book. I have a roommate, too, and we've had some very intimate, deep discussions. But we have no "sexual" feelings for each other.

Is it because you do not feel affection toward women (in general or a specific woman)? Maybe that's because God hasn't called you to that yet, but that's no reason to say someone is gay.

Maybe it's something you aren't comfortable talking about; that's OK. I'll share that I have fallen to pornography of the worst kind, but in my heart I don't want to be gay. I know that Christ died for that sin, too.

I was going to post using the name I frequently use, but considering that last paragraph, I think I'll use a different name.
