Are there any men (like myself) out there whom have been called to serve God - but happened to be born (openly) gay? After reaching out to many of those who classify themselves as 'gay and Christian' over the past couple of years, I am yet to find anyone who fealt, or have experienced, the same need to follow a life of total surrender to that calling. In my experience, those who usually respond positively to any discussion on the topic, only use it as a mechanism to 'meet' other men...without any real need to witness, or to share in Christian fellowship. Most men in my position end up joining either an orthodox Christian Church, or a more liberal movement which ends up being nothing more than a piano bar for cruising the young and vulnerable. Given the prevailing culture of hard bodies, shopping, and open relationships, is the search for true Christian fellowship akin to searching for the Holy Grail (no pun intended)? Or are there men out there who feel themselves called to serve God, but who have not found a 'home' or fellowship in which to realise that? I use the term Christian with great hesitation, given its many interpretations, shady history, and inherent rejection of homosexuals...but, are there anyone else out there who identifies with an apostolic call, and who just happen to be gay? Calling all apostles...!
