So till the beginning of this year I was going to an L.A. area church that apparently had roots with the southern Baptist church. I was going with my volleyball buddy and his ex girlfriend. A year later I learn from this ex-girlfriend that while I was going there, some homophobic guys picked up that some gay guy (maybe phrased in a more hateful way than that) was going to church there and they didn't want any gay guys there. Some of the good guys in the church were very put-off by what these guys were talking about. It normally is a welcoming church except apparently gay people are not really totally welcomed. I guess they had gaydar or something. I'm just a normal guy but these guys picked up on me for some reason and caused a scene at the men's meeting. I of course quit the church when I found out guys like us weren't allowed to become members. My female friend said I should go back to church there and ignore the ignorant people. But I told her why if I am not accepted into the church there. She didn't understand.
