I Will Always Listen

I myself do not agree with many of the lifestyles on here, but that does not mean I have not tried them or it was a form of punishment for me as a child. I remember being called a sissy many times growing up. Having  been raped and molested early on in life I have tried putting on girls clothes. It is just not the lifestyle I have chosen for myself.

In reference to this type of living it is wrong. Adultery is wrong, stealing is wrong, lying is wrong and the list goes on. I do not know why males may be drawn to males and females to females. Maybe it is because mothers have not taught their daughters to be women and the fathers have not taught their sons to man. So the problem has been with society and not the individuals.

At the same time I am going to listen to you. I am going to empathize with you. I am going to love you as friends and family. I am not perfect myself. Together we can come up with solutions that will work for you. I will certainly not be the one to judge you.

I was using the sc<x>ripture in Titus 2:3-5 Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to too much wine. Teaching what is good. That they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, that the Word of God may not be dishonored. Likewise urge the young men to be sensible.<br />

Now I realize not everyone here will agree with me and not everyone here is of the Christian faith. I am dealing with this myself. Do you realize how many times I told my beloved niece that homosexuality is wrong because that is what is in the Bible. In the Old and New Testament.<br />
<br />
I did not want to deal with it. However, I have made good friends, I mean some really good friends who live a homosexual lifestyle whether it be a genetic, biological, or some other experience. Trust me I have have dealt with this in my own life.<br />
<br />
A good friend told me not to stray away from my beliefs but at the same time I know I don't hate you. I do not want to persecute anyone. The Bible is what I know. It is the only thing that got me through the abuse I suffered as a child. Many times I sat in a corner praying a half the night I would not be beat. <br />
<br />
I am not judging because I know throughout the day I too sin. I am not going to stop being your friend because you are different or anyone else is different. I am going to love you the same. <br />
<br />
It is the hate that I am against. The "thou shalt not suffer a witch to live and the homosexual should be put to death." Well if we follow the sc<x>riptures I do not think anyone of us would be alive because we were rebellious to our parents or most of us were. <br />

I am praying for answers to this. I was raped many many times and so I dress up and acted out in my home for years. I am not going to question this. I am just going to put my beliefs aside and to attempt to understand. The one thing I do know is that God knows your heart and you are one of the most wonderful people I know. There are many just like you here.
