Part One: Why I left Christian Fundamentalism to Pursue the Gay Lifestyle
Someone bravely and honestly submitted a question to us: I am is much happier now that I have left Christian Fundamentalism and am pursuing the gay lifestyle. When I am living the gay lifestyle I feel fulfilled and at peace. I’ve tried praying away the gay and lived in repression for so long. Why should I pursue a lifestyle with Christian values that doesn’t allow me to be gay? Drew is tackling this question in three parts. For this episode we will address the first sentence: I am is much happier now that I have left Christian Fundamentalism and am pursuing the gay lifestyle. Let's discuss this complex question together. If you would like to submit a question or a topic please email email@example.com
