What is up with gays who refuse to date someone who is not from their religion?
I never thought religion got in the way of gay relationships because gay relationships don’t lead to marriage in Lebanon (so far *Fingers crossed*) and so there will be no fights over:
– Are we gonna get married in a Church or what?
– Who’s gonna convert? Me or you?
– What religion are the children gonna follow?
I thought these were problems that only straight couples faced.
So if gays don’t have to worry about these issues in Lebanon, why do some of them refuse to date people from different religions?
Why should religion get in the way of a possible great date and or a healthy relationship?
There was one boy on Manjam (gay dating website) who in his profile mentioned something like “No Muslims Please!”.
My first thought was that he has something against Muslims but I could be wrong. Maybe he’s a very strong believer in Christianity and simply prefers that his boyfriend is a Christian too so it would make things easier.
But still. If I respect what you believe in and you respect what I believe in, and as long as we have a healthy dialogue on religious issues, what’s the problem?
I’m not religious so I might not get it. But as a gay man living in Lebanon, I know better for fuck’s sake!
I’m constantly discriminated against because I was born this way.
So why would I discriminate against someone who is born a Muslim, born a Christian, or born whatever, and rule them out as possible friends or lovers?
