Orthodox Church and Homosexuality

Isaac, I understand your fear of joining the Church. I was baptized as a baby in the Orthodox Church and truly long to return after 30 some years. I sneak in to attend mass a few times a year. As a big old dyke, I don’t exactly fit into their idea of a good Orthodox woman. I love the Church so much, it brings me to tears to just be in the Church. But, I can’t bring myself to actually join a Church because I know I’d have to go to confession and it would be a lie if I could not tell the priest that I’m a married gay woman. That is married to another woman. I will probably never build up the courage to just do it and let what will be – be, after all what do I have to lose? Maybe, I’d no longer be able to sneak into Church a few times a year.
