Since this is mom confessions (not drama bashing and bitching over personal differences and lifestyles) I figured I'd make a true confessions post.
I'm a Christian who's been happily married to a man for 13 years. We have 2 kids. I love dh with all of my heart and could never actually be with a woman but I'm physically attracted to them. He knows I find women attractive (its something we discussed while dating) and he knows that whole I love him and and happy being married to him I am not sexually attracted to him. It doesn't get in the way of our sex life, or anything else for that matter.
Now, onto the controversial part... As a Christian I don't believe that BEING gay is a sin. I do however believe that ACTING on those feelings is...(having sex with another woman). I cannot control who I am attracted to. But I can control how I react to those feelings.
The reason i consider myself gay even though I've never been with a woman is bc I'm sexually attracted to the female body...not a man's.
This isn't an "ask me anything" post. However, I dont mind answering questions.

You sound more bi-curious and not actually gay.

I am a Christian that supports gay marriage and marriage equality in general for all.  Would you consider me a bad fellow Christian?

I don't how people bow to the labels, and label them selves. You are more than a "Gay Christian" :) There is nothing wrong with who you are, and it sounds like you know who you are and a comfortable in your skin. hugs momma

do you judge gay women/men who "act on" their feelings?

do you tell them they're going to hell(my 'christian' neighbor does this)?

So, you are in love with your husband, but attracted to women?

I'm not attracted to men at all. I know if I were to ever be with a woman it would be amazing. I just cannot act on my impulses.

Agreed with the PP-you sound more bi-curious than gay. I'm attracted to some women, but I wouldn't say I'm gay or bisexual since I've never been with a woman.

I have no judgment for other people that do not concern me. For myself, I do not support marriage equality. I consider homosexual sex a sin...which is why I am married to a man.
I know it sounds confusing. In trying to explain it the best I can.
