This is a powerful testimony that I found posted on redletterchristian.org, about living in the closet as a gay Christian. Read it here and listen to the pain, plea, hurt. Then pray and ask, what can I do? What can my church do to change this dynamic?
My prayer is that people like this author can come to understand that they are loved and beloved and need to be in a community of faith where they can be open, honest and authentic about who they are. Anything short of that will lead to self-loathing, pain, hurt and both spiritual and relational death.
