Here’s a tricky hypothetical: Would your religious friends be more accepting of your homosexuality, or would your gay friends be more accepting of your faith?
This anonymous writer has a hunch, and I would agree with the conclusion.
The question alone doesn’t apply to most readers, but religious people are becoming more accepting of people who are gay and lesbian, so it wouldn’t surprise me if they came out on top here. (Whether that acceptance still applies to people who act on their homosexuality is another issue.) Given how much damage conservative religions have done to the LGBT community, there’s good reason for people to treat religious gay people with some suspicion.
But I’m saying all this from a distance since I don’t belong in either camp. I’m curious if those of you who are gay or religious might answer this any differently.
