I'm atheist but I can assure you that your God loves and accept you exactly as you are. Being gay isn't a sin, it's not something that harm anybody... It's not something to be ashamed of. It just means that you can fall in love with people that have the same gender as you. There isn't anything wrong with love, right ? And sex isn't a bad thing neither, so don't worry. There is no reason for you to be rejected by your God. People who tell you otherwise are just interpreting the books as they want to, to fit their preconceived opinions...I guess the ones who have to make amend are the ones who reject and hate others just because they're different ^^".
Oh hun.. Of course. Growing up in a very strict religious environment myself I know how judgemental it may be if you believe or are.. hmm, anything outside their realm of "right", If there is a God I believe they dont make mistakes, your beautiful and you were meant to be here, just as you are.. You have to do what feels right for you :) Whatever that may be, and surround yourself with loving people who support your lifestyle/descisions wherever you can find them!

I believe that God loves you completely and always. In personal experience with spirituality, I've found that because God is benevolent and everloving, there shouldn't be any reason He wouldn't accept you. I don't believe God judges a person on their sexual preferences because that doesn't make the person who they are. You are you based on your personality and morals, not which sexual organ you prefer. You are beautiful, and God made you Himself, of course He still loves and accepts you. Acceptance is the main trait that makes God so Godly, because he will love each and every one of his children, those who love their own gender as well.
My personal belief is that the universe is full of love. Only love. Over time, humans have twisted this love to suit their own needs, creating a world full of fear and doubt, all in the name of God. If the acceptance of God matters to you, maybe ask yourself why. Why do you need anyone to accept you when you are perfect as you are? Once we begin to love ourselves, we then start to care less about what God or anyone else thinks. You are a beautiful, individual, divine being. You don't need anyone else's approval. However, if religion and God are important to you, ask yourself whether you want a God who doesn't accept you? If not, is that really something you want to have faith in? To me, God (or in my case, the universe) loves everybody, regardless. All of the answers (and the truth) is already inside of you. You are accepted, you are love (and loved). Believe in it and trust in yourself.
