Bill, Bill, Bill......
Your single paragraph above should be enough to prove to YOURSELF that you are gay. I don't care either way -- but I would bet my mother's life that you are gay.
Because, believe it or not Bill, we do not all fight the desire to be gay, because WE DON'T HAVE TO. Most of us are legitimately straight and have been since the day we were born, because that's the way it works. However, YOU were born gay and you feel unbelievably guilty about it because your religion tells you it's wrong. It's silly to say that homosexuality is a sin within us all. It's not, Bill. It's a FACT about YOU....and simply put, there's nothing wrong with you (other than your intelligence and just about everything else unrelated to your sexual preference).
You have had homosexual thoughts since you were a child (as you clearly wrote in another post). You have known your whole life that you were gay, and it freaks you out, because your religion has taught you that it's wrong to be gay and that gay people burn in hell for eternity.
So what do you do? You spend your whole life trying to ignore the fact that you're gay. And to help ease your internal pain & suffering, you tell yourself silly stuff like "being gay isn't a sin, only persuing a homosexual lifestyle is." And so, you have lived your whole life as a closet homosexual, going so far as to marry and have kids.....all because you're scared stupid of this make-believe superman whom you call "God."
It's silly and pathetic, Bill. It's FINE that you're gay. PLEASE stop trying to prove to your god (and to everyone else) that you're not gay. YOU ARE GAY.
You're going to waste what little time you have left worrying about stupid crap like this, and you'll be dead before you know it. And for what? Nothing. You wasted your whole life.
