Documentaries / Opening God’s Closet

What is religion? Does it offer people a spiritual oasis? Or does it control people’s lives with rules and dogma?

Religion is everywhere and it enters our lives in a myriad of ways. Temples, mosques, synagogues and churches dominate the urban landscape, religious organizations work relentlessly to influence politics, and much of the world’s biggest problems find their roots in religious conflicts. A lot of us are religious disciples, and even atheists create their own spiritual system marked by worship for family, friends and comrades.

Religious theories often find it hard to incorporate homosexuality. It’s marked as a sin, a perversion, an illegality, something that hurts the family. Yet does God really hate homosexuals? In this episode of Queer Comrades, we talk to 5 believers who help us open up God’s closet to see if it contains a condemnation of queerness.

“In Matthew 25, in that scene that people label as the Last Judgment scene, there are no questions asked about who we sleep with or in what position. The only questions that are asked are if we fed the hungry, if we cared for people in need, if we visited the sick and the imprisoned, so if we tried to bring change to social structure.” — Pat Baumgardner

    (+ J.): I fail to understand your you have logenr identities but your full BTI’ identity has been recognized so deal comment. Sounds like a slight but if that’s what you wish to expend energy on, do it alone. @Adrian, my initial comment to you (which is much logenr and includes what I hope to be some helpful information) is still awaiting moderation for some freaking reason. Haven’t seen that in a long time so I’ll give it a day or so, then try and repost. The main thing: Stay strong and remember that you’re perfectly fine, just as you were created. There is no rush to tell the entire world and while you’re coping with the reactions of your family, I pray and hope they will turn around and realize in short order that you’re still the same beautiful person today that you were the day before you came out to them. Your sexual orientation is not what defines you; it’s but one of the many characteristics and facets that help to make you, distinctly and uniquely who you are. Take care (((hugs))),Michael
