No, it's not, as I'm technically a Catholic, and nowhere in the Bible does it say that being homosexual is a sin, or being anything other than heterosexual. And for you and your bi friend who like each other, I'd say go for it! Good luck with whatever you decide to do about this though.

There has been so many debates on where it's a sin or not. I'm part of the hay community and I myself has struggle alot with that question. I have made peace within myself about who and what I'm and that helped me maby it could help you to? About your bi friend, if it feels right to you then do it only you know what will make you happy.

Being bisexual is not a sin. If you two both like eachother I would say go for it. You won't know if you don't try.

All orientations are ok, none of them is a sin. Your orientation is just the way you are, it's your way to live and love. Nothing that involves love, or even just harmless pleasure and fun, can in any way be a sin. Sex and love, whoever you share them with, are meant to bring joy to life. Sin is a concept that means different things in different cultures, but something so harmless and beautiful as love can't in any way be a sin. And if you and your friend like each other, there's no reason you shouldn't allow yourself the chance to be happy together!

Hi, I'm bisexual too, and even if I don't know you I do know me and I can swear to you that bisexuality is definitely not a sin. It's completely natural, and you're not the only one in this case. I want you to know that you're not weird or whatever you think you are, it's completely okay to like both genders. It's even mega positive, you have twice more choice!! Don't be afraid of who you are, be proud of being yourself ❤️ For your friend, if you feel okay to have a relationship with them, then go for it! I'm not in your shoes so I can't chose for you, but know that whatever you decide, you're doing well, and you're loved and accepted. Good luck ❤️

No! Definitely. Love has no boundaries and you should never compromise on love. Every emotion is valid. And every feeling is important. Validate it. Live life. Do not ever allow anyone to dictate your feelings. If you love someone, love wholeheartedly! Especially during these trying times. Dont be ruled by your brain only. And you can't help whom you fall in love with. Till the time, you have a body, a living soul and a brain that is working, go for it! Let no one come in between you and your lover. All will be well. Just trust in your capacity!

No. You did not choose your sexuality. How did something you did not choose be a sin? God is not so unjust as to make you sin by being who you are. The relationship between religion and the LGBTQ community is a complicated one, and everyone experiences it differently. It all depends on how you feel, and what you choose. Historically many orthodox religions have treated LGBTQ people harshly. However, within nearly every religious denomination there are now supportive groups that have adopted different interpretations about LGBTQ people. Some denominations, such as Reform Judaism and the Episcopalian church, are openly supportive of LGBTQ members. As society shifts to be more accepting of LGBTQ people, many other denominations are starting to become LGBTQ-inclusive. Despite what you may have read on the internet, it’s very important for you to know that there is nothing wrong with being bisexual or a lesbian. Just because you might like girls does not mean you are going to hell. In fact, there are many practicing Catholics who are gay, lesbian, etc. and there is even a group within the Catholic Church who are working hard for LGBT rights: These people are proof that you can be religious and a lesbian, or bisexual. There are many religious leaders who spread a message of love and acceptance of ALL people. Have you ever spoken with someone from the Catholic Church who is accepting of different sexual orientations? If you have not, we encourage you to read through PFLAG’s guide called “Faith in Our Families: Parents, Families, and Friends Talk About Religious and Homosexuality”: It could help you start a conversation with a trusted adult in your faith, or even a parent or friend. If you choose to. The bible only forbids man on man anal sex. Not relationships between men without sex, or female sex, or female love.

No one should judge your choices regardless of what they are. In addition, no one should tell you whether to “ go for it” or not. You have to make your own choices in life and hopefully will feel comfortable making them. It is certainly hard to make a decision we later regret, but that can be part of the learning and growing process of life. There are often choices we make that others may or may not agree with, but it is important to stay true to who you are. Feel good about making whatever choice you make. Be strong- and we are here to support you whatever you decide!
