What's it Like Being Out of the Closet??

I'm the type of person who likes to express the way I'm feeling, most of the time. However, I am a quiet person and I think a lot of my own issues out on my own, but if there is something bothering me, I'll tell someone. I sometimes wonder what my life would be at this very, exact second, if everyone knew I was gay. I feel like my life would be a lot different. I don't think I would have gotten into my fraternity. I would be more wild and crazy! I would be more confident, as weird as that sounds. I wouldn't have extreme cases of paranoia. Guys would hit on me(maybe haha). Homophobic people would avoid me.

Is living the closeted life overall better? Is it more fulfilling? Is it more rewarding? The average male only lives till their mid 70's and I'm already 19. I want to live a fun life. God gave me this life, so I mine as well make the best of it and enjoy it. I have a friend from high school who came out and no one cared. I don't think people are as judgmental as I think. It's the closed minded ones that scare us into staying in the closet, along with our own fears and concerns.

Well I'm sick of being in the damn closet. I want to bust down the damn closet doors and meet people and be happy. Screw the ignorant individuals who judge, their the ones that are probably insecure about themselves. We haven't hurt them in any way, so what is wrong with our society? Are gay people really that bad of people? I guess so considering only six states allow same-sex marriage. Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Washington D.C. That's pathetic. It should be all should have ALWAYS been all 50. We're just as much of a U.S. citizen as a straight person is, yet we're treated so differently for something we didn't choose.

It just goes to show how narrow-minded our society still is as a whole. Some countries are still beating and murdering homosexuals, like mindless barbarians.

The other day I told a buddy that I couldnt chill one afternoon since I picked up a shift at work and his response was "shit, thats gay". But if I told him I was able to chill, he's response would have been 'straight'.

No where in the Bible does Jesus say homosexuality is wrong. Every verse that refers to homosexuality is in the Old Testament. If being gay is something as horrible as some people make it out to be, you would think Jesus, who spent about 30 years on this Earth, would have mentioned it. Just maybe.

  1. Hmmm, lot's of major philosophical/theological implications here.

    Let me just say, so as not to dishearten anyone (even though I really excel at doing that), that BEING homosexual and DOING homosexual are 2 very different things.

    The Old Testament does indeed address homosexuality. But I would suggest reading Corinthians about this matter. And note where it says "such as you were."

    But remember mostly that when Jesus walked among us, he did not go and talk to the righteous, believing people. But to the tax-collectors, prostitutes, sinners, etc.

    1 big thing that nearly everyone overlooks is this: Jesus taught "Repent for the Kingdom is at hand." But Paul, who was specially appointed by Jesus after his ascension, taught: "Believe in order that you may be saved." 2 very different, but non-contradictory teachings.
    Food for thought. =)

    And, no, Jesus is neither gay nor straight. Which I'm sure will confound many of yall.
