I’m a Gay Guy at a Christian College

Written by scott on April 15th, 2014

Shaun MeladyIf this were a normal occurrence, I would prelude this with, “I’m sorry, but… ”

But not anymore. I need to get this out of my system. I need to finally get rid of this. I am a 22-year-old gay guy at a Christian college and I am tired of hiding.

I am fed up with the worry, angst, and fear about what other “Christians” are going to think. I am sick of the judgmental glares that come my way when I walk through the halls. I am tired of thinking in a worrisome manner about what the next words should be that come out of my mouth because I don’t want the “people of God” to think that I am some kind of grotesque being.

Who are you?

The guys who think I am looking at them in a flirtatious manner do not give me the time of day to be a friend. They have already decided that I am checking them out and wanting more. Don’t flatter yourself.

    You are His child and you are PERFECT in His eyes. Spread the love in your heart…..eventually it will smother the hate around you. God BLESS you. <3

    Matthew 7: 1 and 2 –

    1 “Judge not, that ye be not judged.”

    2 “For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.”

    As a Christian myself, I find it almost laughable how many of us can be such hypocrites, and then when we call them on it, they get defensive.

    Be who you are, and who God made you to be. You are special and beautiful in His eyes, and no amount of ridicule or bitter sentiment from them can change that. And, if that is the only reason the guys won’t be friends with you, well… that doesn’t speak much for them, now does it?

    Be strong. And kudos to you for being courageous. <3

    On one occasion Jesus was asked: “Master, which is the great commandment of the law?” He answered: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets” Matt. 22:36-40

    So, the way I see it, God made gays to see which Christians are really following the rules…

    Good Luck, and be PROUD!!
