I am a Christian.
I have always gone to church.
I was a SA officer (Pastor).
I have held positions of leadership.
I am straight.
I have never married.
I do not intend to marry.
I am 62.
I am not a virgin.
I have had sex with boyfriends.
I am not a whore.
I do not 'fit' in the mold of the SWF, Christian, celibate.
Some were officers.
Some are officers, who are not virgins.
Who have boyfriends.
Who have sex. Yes, even while going to church.
While being officers.
While trying to live up to the set standard.
Well, honestly, maybe not trying.
Because it doesn't make sense.
We are women who are sexual beings like everyone else.
In relationships with gents who are sexual beings like everyone else.
Because at some point that is the next part of the relationship. These are people for whom we care deeply.
And who care deeply for us.
But we choose not to marry.
Often not even live with.
Are you shocked? Do not be.
Or maybe you should be. There is much more (living) going on than you see.
I can only tell you this because I am a member of the club.
Perhaps it is time to open your eyes about the reality of sex and the single populace - gay, straight, or other.
You may now label me 'sinner'.
I do not consider myself so.
I believe none of my gay friends or the gay members of our fellowship consider themselves sinners either.
They are merely in love with whom they are in love.
And please know, this does not apply to all unmarried Christians. But it does apply to more than you will know.
Because I know.
