The starting point of this work was conviction, that we may say "YES" both to God and to full humanity, which includes not only spirituality, but sexuality and gender with all their variations as well. 

In manifested universe two opposite forces appear; Chinese philosophy calls them yin & yang, and they are roughly divided as feminine - masculine, darkness - light, negative - positive etc., but this has nothing to do with one being better than another. Tension between these forces makes all Creation possible. It is a fact of nature, that there are two genders, BUT: it is unlikely, that anyone is in either end of line, and in between every variation exists!

God is Unity above all earthly polarization, but into Him all opposites merge in perfect harmony: man - woman, straight - gay, and everything in between. Just like God is One as three and three  as One. And this is for sure: God is not a white heterosexual male! God is Spirit and God is Love.

God who is interested in what people do in their bedrooms, is a filthy old man; God who is pulling the strings and personally controlling everything on earth, is a dictator and puppet master; God who sends any of his creatures to eternal punishment, is Satan himself! That "god" is not worth worship. That "god" is created by men unto their own image.

Word became flesh, and to hallow His name is to become Whole ("holy") - to gain balance between your sexual or gender identity and your faith. Even if you're not sure if it's possible for you, we welcome you as you are - beloved child of God, brother or sister in Christ - without demanding anything from you.

It is beneficial to know other people who walk the same way - perhaps already a few steps ahead. To love your neighbor is to listen to him or her closely, without judging, just approving. To be a Christian is to walk in the footprints of Jesus: He is the Way! It is the nature of the way to be walked, and only the one who starts to walk, will learn to know the way. It is pointless to study the way and to discuss  it, unless you're going to walk the way!

It's not a concern of any man to evaluate the quality and quantity of your Christianity; It is a personal love affair. Only He can see your heart and judge you. It is enough to keep seeking, knocking and asking. A question is not, whether Jesus will approve you, but will you approve Him?!

If you truly live with the Bible and learn how God is with us, you cannot help but becoming a fellowman. If we insist that Bible must be observed in a certain light, it might prevent somenone else to find God! What is life for one, is death for another.

Nobody can be a Christian on his own: It's all about "OUR Father" and "Love your neighbor". In the image of the Cross we see a vertical line - a relationship with God - and a horizontal line, community of Christians. In the "crossing point" is the figure of Jesus Christ: True human and true God. Those who pray together and for one another, are also united with one another and Christ is in the midst of them, as He promised.

We are not interested in religious dogmas but the living Christ. Mind segregates but heart unites. Lgbt-Christians as a minority among minority and a rock of offence to many (Hetero-)Christians, should stick together: Unity is Power! However, (to respect) "every opinion" is not same as any opinion, for there are opinions so greatly opposed to humanist and democratic values.

Gay Affirmations by Mark Anthony Lord:

I am made in the image and likeness of God (Love, Wisdom, Joy, Peace, Passion, Freedom).
This is who I truly am, was and always will be. These qualities of Spirit flow gracefully within and around me as I practice being authentic, generous and loving with myself. They really multiply when I practice the Law of Allowing, which states that every person is free to be, think and create as they are. I am no longer threatened by those that think being gay is anything less than glorious. I cannot and will not let their opinions influence my life or bring me down ... it's just not worth it. I am what I am, and what I am is so wonderful!

"You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." - Matthew 5:14 - 16
The "Father who is in heaven" is another way of saying perfect, uninhibited, Infinite Love. Love is not male, female, straight or gay ... it simply is. Love heals, Love restores, Love prevails ... when you let it shine!

"I am the Light of the world, willing to shine boldly, brightly and passionately. I shine that others may see me, know me and love me. I shine that others may also feel safe to shine their own light more freely and powerfully."
