I have always considered myself to be a very religious person; I may not come off as one at first, but I am an Orthodox Christian, came to the church on my own terms, and have been happy within it ever since.
I believe that labeling homosexuality as "sinful" and "wrong", or making such rash assumptions regarding Tolkien's opinion of it, is not a very Christian way of doing things. We can fling Bible verses at each other all day long, but in the end, one thing remains clear-we are all equal in the eyes of God, and all of us have sinned, and all will be judged accordingly. Can we not please use our time on Earth to love one another despite our various imperfections? The greatest human good, I believe, is compassion.
And yep-Eve is bi. She said so herself, in her first post on this topic.
