"I think the movement is less spiritual than that; much of it is purely legal, with more emphasis on the family than the faith (see NOM's (National Organization for Marriage) website to observe this view). There is the element where LGBTQ people…"

How much does sexuality affect your religiosity?

As a gay person, people have asked me on more than one occasion if I'm an atheist because I am gay.My answer is no.
