Reading a lot about homosexuality and our religious traditioni have some questions. None of this has ever permitted or blessed homosexuality. I want to follow your comments exactly — was the priest who told you that he had no problem with your sexuality as long as it was within a monogamous relationship, an Orthodox priest?
We also post regular community events run by other London bi groups events titled with "[other group]" to publicise them, or for relevant external events BiCon, Pride etc. You get one warning. I have been lucky not to encounter too many negative experiences concerning my sexual orientation.
Just as I can only describe my calling to the priesthood as a feeling instilled in me from Christ Himself, I can only describe the love and attraction that I have for my husband as a feeling instilled in me from Christ Himself.
You are very blessed and beloved by God, never forget that. Anna, The Orthodox Church has changed its mind on numerous issues and will one day embrace the science and empirical proof that millions of gay, lesbian, and transgendered individuals were given our sexual orientation by our Creator — at birth.
Unless I keep silent on my sexuality. Why is this?
