I have several friends and some relatives who are gay. It surprises me that they remain Christians and keep going to the church even though they are well aware of the teachings and beliefs of their religion regarding homosexuality. They are aware of how some church members judge them and treat them as if they have some kind of psychological problems. A lot of times they are being disrespected and made fun of. What surprises me even more is the fact that they themselves think that being gay is something wrong and not normal but that they have no control over it or that it's some kind of an incurable illness. They believe that they are committing a sin by being gay and make up for it by asking for forgiveness and doing good deeds. I've asked some of them that if god hates gay people, why would he make them gay in the first place? None so far has provided me a convincing answer to this question.
