Left out, Alone, Forbidden

“Whenever I came to know someone whose company I really enjoyed, I would always fear that I might come to like them too much, that I might come to love them. And within the traditional interpretation of Scripture, falling in love is one of the worst things that could happen to a gay person…So while you watch your friends fall in love, get married, and start families, you will always be left out. You will never share in those joys yourself – of a spouse and of children of your own. You will always be alone.” —Matthew Vines

“Being left out, alone and forbiden to share? This is more the fault of our privileged, straight, Christian neighbors, not the Celibacy Rulebook. This you must admit as true, regardless of what you believe the Rulebook says.” -a friend of mine
