Gays and religion

How much does religion play a part in how LGBT people feel about themselves? You keep hearing people like Nazir-Ali (Bish of Rochester) and the African Anglican bishops sounding off. It occurred to me that people here might feel a bit cheesed off about being considered tenth-rate citizens because of their sexuality (which we can't help, anyway, but, even if we could, we could quite rightly answer that these nutcases can choose their brand of bigotry, but don't have to). Just wondered. I'm new to the forum, run a very lively blog on gays and religion (which I'll post a URL to later) and it would be good to get some opinions.

RE: Gays and religion

They're at it again. I've blogged a story about Northern Ireland on http://ptt-blog.blogspot.com/2008/06/dire-straights.html. More about straights who think they can turn gays straight, and wonder why gay people go mad and commit suicide because their religious beliefs conflict with their sexuality. And this guy is a qualified psychiatrist (mind you, I think all psychiatrists are mad, anyway) who is an adviser to a senior politicians. And the senior politicians herself is a religions fruitcake who thinks homosexuality is an abomination. Have a read.

Don't forget that not all religious organisations operate like that. It was the Quakers, Progressive Jews and Unitarians that got the law on marriage changed, for example.
