Once upon a time, I dedided to visit a psychologist, having the feeling I am lesbian but I never admited or at least accept it personally.So here I went expressing my self to my brave psychotherapist, she actually knew I am lesbian,once she told me, I refused the idea becuase of my religion view point.After a while I was struglling with my friend that I fell in love with her. Expressing my feelings to my sister, I came out,here she surprised me by saying I accept you as you are.My sister than gave me a push to admite to my psychologist that yes I believe I am a lesbian. My psychologist immediatly replied by it's NOT a sin,a sickness, or smoething wrong. I began to work on my slef to acccpet the idea, but couldn't solve my religious view point. So here comes my smart psychologist by saying:" I asked an open minded prest and he said it's not a sin." I started anylizing things in my mind, and asking my self is it really not a sin according to my religion?I decided to go to an open minded preset, so i aksed him:"Is homosexuality a sin?" He replied by NO it's NOT.The church used to believe homosexuality is victims, now they think it's normal, but according to the churh the pupose between starights is to produce a baby, so they are still asking themselves what is the purpose between homosexuals? So here I need to find the answer until they find there too.The problem in christins is, people used to say that homosexuality accroding to christianity is a sin, because everything people believe in, they through it into religion and say Christianity say it's a sin eventhough Christianity NEVER said this, but TRADITION say this.Finally, I accept it the idea more, and believed more that yes homosexuality IS NOT A SIN ACCRODING TO CHRISTIANITY. I am very proud to be who I am whether I am a lesbian or whatever I am.
