Before God

    You die. As it turns out there is a God and you're now standing before him. He charges you with rebellion against his created order; by being attracted to members of the same sex, you violated his law and showed disdain for what he'd intended.
    You think (but don't say out loud) "Well fuck that shit, I never asked to be created into your wonderful 'natural order' just as I never asked to be attracted to men. Matter of fact, if what you wanted was a perfect robot that does what you want, then that's exactly what you should have created instead of an organic human being."

    You've barely completed the thought in your head when it dawns on you that God is perfectly aware of your thoughts.

    What do you think he'll say next?

    [PS: the discussion isn't whether there is a God and what he really thinks of same-sex attraction. The contextual boundaries for THIS specific discussion are those described above. If your imagination can't play along and squeeze itself into this narrow scenario, then please don't feel any pressure to respond to the thread, thanks.]

    "Whoa!!! Calm down, son. Up here we're not male nor female, so all that stuff is irrelevant. All I want to know is whether you loved someone. I don't care if they were male or female or anything inbetween".

    I'm loving the responses, guys! The reason I asked the question is that I believe part of being at peace with yourself is being at peace with the possibility of being wrong-- it's the only way "redemption" (note inverted commas) can happen. We've asked fundamentalists to consider the possibility that they're wrong. But it would be unfair to ask that of another if you yourself can't do it.

    first let me find someone, then i will think what will happen in the next world. God loves his creatures, even the bad people. I am sure he will forgive. I think a heterosexual who jumps from one partner to another is as (if you want to consider) guilty before god than a gay person who does the same.

    Being gay or attracted to the same sex is also in the animal kingdom, it is nature. Being a human and conscious of it like you and some others, is enough suffering fighting it. Remember even the people who are out at one time or another fought it and suppressed their feelings of guilt and shame. That is not fun to live a life like that and most do. So god better forgive and say you suffered enough.
