I pulled the following excerpt out of Curve magazine a few years ago. It was written by a senior at a all-girls Catholic school in San Francisco.

“Being at a Catholic school has forced me to look at my faith in terms of my sexuality. I know what it means to be a Catholic now; I know the religion and that it extends to more than its narrow, dark history. My religion teacher taught me something really important about faith: It’s better to disagree with God and your religion, and to question what you’re taught, than to just blindly accept things. God wants you to interact with your spirit and religion–that’s why I believe God accepts me for who I am, even if I am different. Knowing that has strengthened my belief in myself and my faith. Ironically enough, a lot of my support and confidence about my sexuality has come through my religion.”
