Coastline Bible Church - "What My Church Taught Me About My Sexuality"

Far too many gay youth who grow up attending church are taught horrible, awful, terrible things about their own sexuality. For me to say that 15 years ago I was taught homosexuality was simply "wrong" would be silly. Rather I prefer to illustrate how I learned about homosexuality in church, by recalling specific incidents that would shape the rest of my life.

I believe the years of anti-gay teachings I endured as a minor at this church amounts to psychological child abuse -- To not tell my story and how my life was harmed by my church's teachings would be a disservice to other gay youth currently enduring the same thing.
