For those attacking me for being a “hypocrite” because I go to church even though I am imperfect (Yes, I am effeminate, yes I have tendencies, yes I have made many mistakes):
I never said I am holier than anyone, nor did I say that I am above others.
I go to church because I recognize my faults which need correction and healing. I go there, I practice my faith because that is the only thing that makes me happy. I have religion because I need a solid guide.
That doesn’t make me a hypocrite. Being a hypocrite is saying you are better than anyone, being a hypocrite is calling someone delusional when you yourself have not done anything to examine your own delusions.
Besides, my church does not discriminate against me, but it does point out my mistakes in broad daylight and challenges me to change.
When I discovered my Faith, I was like St. Paul: “And immediately there fell from his eyes as it were scales, and he received his sight; and rising up, he was baptized.” (Acts 9:18) I am not blind as they think of me, I was set free.
Like when He hung from the Cross, I spoke the truth and they gave me insults. A water from the rock he gave, and we provided him gall.
