Is God gay?
This may seem like a silly question.
But most religions depict God as masculine.
And most of those beloved of God are men.
So is God gay?
Rumi, the Islamic Sufi poet, wrote about the intoxicating love of God.
But his mentor, the one who introduced him to these ideas, was a man - Shams-i-Tabrizi.
Their love is legendary.
And the poetry is beautiful.
God loves men and women equally.
He is our Mother/Father.
So it is not altogether outrageous to characterize God as gay.
He engages in same-sex love relationships.
And He embodies all kinds of love.
Including gay love.
All people are made in the image of God.
God is heterogeneous.
But He may also be homosexual.
