“I feel the more I know God, that He would sooner we did wrong in loving than never love for the fear of doing wrong” ~ Father Andrew
A few years back when I was coming to terms with my sexuality, a friend of mine wrote this quote on a piece of paper and handed to me. I am not sure where he found it or why he would have kept it. I just know he thought it would help me out by showing that there are people within the Catholic Church whom do not believe that God would condemn one for being a homosexual. He explained to me that Father Andrew was a Catholic priest who lives in Canada. Father Andrew was gay and that the topic he was discussing was being a homosexual.
I am grateful that my friend shared with me Father Andrew’s message. It did help me with understanding that God created me the way I am. It helped me with understanding that one can be gay and Catholic. So why create a blog about discovering the truth about being gay and Catholic then? There are still many questions I am seeking the answers too. Many of them come with how one lives the life of a gay Catholic. Is it all right to date? Can I tell others that I am gay or must I tell them I have “same sex attractions” or “homosexual tendency”? Will I ever experience true intimacy with another person? Is it a sin to go to “gay friendly” places, like gay clubs? Are there other gay Catholics that trying to find the same answers as I am? These and many other questions I will be discussing here and sharing with you what I have learned.
I do hope you will come back and visit this site often. I hope you gain something by reading what I share here. I pray that if you are seeking similar answers, as I am that you will find them. Thank you for your time.
