You guys would be amazed at some of the e-mails I receive from readers or people like the woman I'm about to introduce you to who calls herself "God'z Girl". She stumbled upon a blog I wrote on anti-gay minister Bishop Liston Paige and decided to send me an e-mail to warn me about the error in my ways(You can change Darian! Just repent and give your life to the Lord!) and provide some tough Christian love. And of course her e-mail started out like this;"I'm not coming to you being hypocritical, judgmental, self-righteous, or religiously debating because I'm in now way any of those things". Yeah right.
In a fit of rage(not really, I'm just being dramatic) I trashed her first message but I managed to save the ones that followed. Here's how it all went down.

I'm gonna keep this short and sweet because I just don't have the energy today to participate in another religious debate. Maybe another day, but not today.
I was going to respectfully disagree with your argument because I've heard it before. But one line of your comment struck me:
"Our sexual preference is a CHOICE. And we have the choice to chose between right and wrong - no matter what the sin is"
If you really believe that a person's sexual orientation is a choice rather than being innate then I have to ask you 6 questions that will hopefully
make you re-visit your assertion on this topic.
1. When did you decide to become heterosexual?
4. What were you wearing?
5. Did you have an option between heterosexuality and homosexuality?
6. When you made the decision to be a heterosexual did you immediately run out and tell everyone that you'd decided this orientation over the other?
Sound crazy? Probably because you won't be able to answer these questions, because I can almost guarantee you never made a decision to be straight it was just apart of who you are.
I can't understand for the life of me why bible thumping, hypocritical, self-righteous, judgemental Christians can't understand that it works the same for gays and lesbians.

Thanks for reading my post.
I do believe that the very first thing I said in my comment was that I'm not coming to you being hypocritical, judgmental, self-righteous, or religiously debating because I'm in now way any of those things. I've been through too much in my 36 years of life. If anything, I have compassion for people not judgment.
I too am going to keep this short and sweet. I could answer every one of your questions with ease, but answering will continue on a journey you don't wish to take.
One name I will agree with however, is Bible-thumping. I know the Word of God and that's how I live my life - according to His Word. Do I make mistakes? Have I sinned? Of course I have. But the key is recognizing what I did, confess to God, repent, and keep right on moving toward my goal: to be more like Him.
I also included other sins because the Bible doesn't limit it to homosexuality or lesbianism. I said that to say this: if you are a Christian you simply can't continue to ignore what God says on that subject as well as others. It doesn't matter how long you had the desire for men, it was never God's intention. And the reason why you've heard it all before is because God is giving you the opportunity to repent and receive your deliverance in that area. You will never be able to say that God didn't present himself to you on numerous occasions.
I'm not going to view the youtube video because it won't change my mind on this subject.
I don't even know how I came across your page. I think I was searching for someone. But I do know that I didn't find it by chance. I pray that one day all will be well with you.
A big hug to you and take care!
A big hug to you too because you really believe you came across my profile to "deliver a word" and turn me away from my "wickedness".
All is well with my soul and my relationship with the God I serve.
Be blessed as I am everyday that God breathes life into my body.
God's Black Gay Creation,
