Orthodox Church and Homosexuality

James, forgive me if I come across as rude, but your advice that “perhaps you could learn much from dating a girl for a time to see how it makes you feel” sounds homophobic to me. While sexuality can be confusing for some, it is not so for others. Perhaps our brother Nikola already understands his. I also think it is likely not going to be fair or charitable to the hypothetical girl in this situation – she is not a guinea pig, and would be hurt if Nikola left her for a man/found out the reason behind his dating her.
When my parents (who accept my sexuality) found out I was getting married, they advised that I “sleep with men first”. I was very hurt by this. So I speak with some experience.

This is a horrible, difficult situation 🙁
