The problem with being gay and Christian is that we are caught between two monopolies.
Fundamentalist Christians want a monopoly on God.
And Satanists in our popular culture want a monopoly on sex, especially gay sex.
So to be a sexually active gay man and a Christian is almost impossible.
It is as if we have to be one or the other - celibate Christians going to heaven or sexually active gay men going to hell.
But my experience of God is that He does not discriminate - He treats gay people in the same way as He treats straight people.
The Age of Aquarius will see the emergence of gay Churches.
But for now we are stuck with two monopolies who will use violence to achieve their objectives.
