my name is Dezy nd im a lesbian, im new to being a christian and im very confused. a lot of people that i kno are fine with me being myself but a lot of people who go to my church are against it. My pastor told me he wouldn't baptize me because i am a lesbian, and its not acceptable. does anyone have advice for me?

Maybe you should try a different denomination. The United Church of Christ (not to be confused with the Church of Christ, which is VERY different) is very queer-affirming. So are the Unitarian Universalists. I'm joining the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, which is queer-friendly. Hope that helps.

I go to a spiritualist church (http://www.ourcelebration.org/) i was concerned that it was not exactly Christian but I'm happy there. It is very positive!

@Deserea. there are MCC churches in Missouri. I go to one in Kansas City where people support our lgbt people. I haave become such an introvert so I have to make myself be more expressive and connect with others.
