Can religion and gay dating ever coexist?

Religion is typically a controversial topic for most, but it’s an especially controversial issue for gay people, because of what religion often says about sexual orientation. This is a significant topic for me because, as the owner of a successful gay dating website (OneGoodLove.com), and as the friend of many gay men in relationships, I’ve seen firsthand how people’s religious beliefs affect their lives — and trust me, it’s not a pretty picture. When your religious beliefs say that you are sinning simply because of whom you love, it can be a crushing blow to your self-esteem and happiness. I am a huge evangelist when it comes to being happy. I post happy photos of myself constantly on Instagram and Facebook to show friends that I’m having a good time. I know the mere mention of this may make you (or them) want to slap me, but my intentions are good. I am not trying to brag about my life; rather, I am trying to inspire others to join me in having a happy life too. So it is hard for me to watch close friends and others struggle with the issue of religion and gay dating. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/nicholas-marlin/can-religion-and-gay-dating-ever-coexist_b_3248722.html
