Question
i think im gay. im 15.

Answer
Alex,
   Sexual activity is chosen.  Sexual interests can be shaped.  I can tell you that there is not a single place in the scriptures where homosexual behavior is acceptable.  In the few places where homosexual desires are mentioned, they, too, are condemned.  I take it, because you are contacting me, you don't want to be gay?  I need more to go on here.  Help me out, please.

Respectfully,
Wayne Tucker
