Jehovah witness beliefs on interracial dating
I lost any chance that a brother will house share with me or want to go on holidays. Some say it is no different than for a sister that has never married, but it is not the same.She still has the hope and possibility to find a marriage mate. Having friends in the truth does not make up for it.A heterosexual mans attraction toward a woman feels completely natural.
In fact, I was still a virgin and did not want to engage in sexual activity with any person due to my love of Jehovah.The thought to be with a woman is simply not there, for some of us it just isn’t something that could ever be considered.When we overcome temptation, like the thought of stealing or viewing pornography, we can feel proud that we overcome it and have Jehovah’s favour.A brother and sister, even though their friendship is platonic, cannot be alone together.As a gay Jehovah’s Witness, I cannot be alone with either sex. They moved to different congregations to make it easier not to fall into temptation.Whilst impressed with their level of faith in order to do this, it is sad gay people are denied very basic human rights, the right to love someone and build a home with that person.It becomes a lonely life with no prospects in that regard. Other brothers did not feel comfortable to invite me on holidays that they arranged.Several congregation events were organised, and I was asked to pick up a young brother from a nearby village. I learned that his father did not want his son and me alone in the car.That this father thought I might sexually attack his son hurt deeply. Soon, I was learning that all young brothers in the congregation had been warned not to be alone with me.I was not after sex, and had no plans to sexually attack these people, but because I was outed as being gay, people became uncomfortable with me.
