Being Gay is a Gift from God

Last week on Oprah, two minister's said being Gay was a gift from God. This lead to much discussion and questions on various blogs and Internet sights. In claifying the comment, The Ask Yahoo site chose this as the best:

What you have to remember is that Spirituality and Religion are not necessarily the same thing. You can have one without the other. You can believe in God, without believing in the dogma, the rules of a particular church.As was stated on that program, it isn't God that gets hung up on the name, it is the humans. It is the humans that insist that a particular religion is 'the one true religion', that the words in a book are the 'inspired word of God' that MUST be followed. It is humans that hate in the name of God.I believe that we are all made in the image of God/Spirit, and we will all return to Spirit when we die from this earth. God doesn't make mistakes, we all have gifts, whether we realize those gifts or not.It might be that we have to go through some trials in our lives in order for our gifts to shine through, to others it might come easier. Just think of all of the famous gifted homosexuals throughout history, Michelangelo, DaVinci, William Shakespeare, Tennessee Williams, Leonard Bernstein, Rock Hudson, and so many more (and that's not even mentioning the lesbians or the bisexuals).Of course it is a gift, just as every life is a gift.
