I have been fighting to admit that I am lesbian for a long time now, because I am a christian and I love God and have grown up in a christian household. I don't know how to break this to my parents, they are loving anyway and also I don't know whether the bible even justifys homosexuality?

Rachel, I understand your dilemma, I have written on this subject a lot please check past discussions to see a "answer" to your question. If you are living under their roof, I would wait until I got a place of my own and was able to support myself,..............too many glbtq, somehow believe there's some urgency to share with their parents their pride in being who they are, only to find themselves, ........homeless.In Proverbs 16:18, the Bible tells us that New International Version (©1984) "Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall." So it can wait, really. Your survival and education depends on it. But while you are waiting, you can educate yourself on the subject. If I may recommend these books which may be downloadable from Amazon. 1) Living in Sin?-A bishop rethinks human sexuality.- John Shelby Spong 2)What the Bible really says about Homosexuality: recent findings by top scholars offer a radical new view-Daniel A. Helminak, Ph.D. 3) A fish out of water (Movie) Website: http://www.fishoutofwaterfilm.com/ Also here are some you tube links for you. "Prop 8 - The Musical" starring Jack Black, John C.
