So I came across this without meaning to. Found it sort of interesting, I'll put the link here if anyone wants to do some reading.
It's about religion (Christian faith) and homosexuality. I'll probably look up more later when my internet is working better. But for now, this is all I have.

"The use of the notion of “sin” in this connection frequently betrays a large-scale misunderstanding. As both Jesus and Paul make almost excessively clear, they address themselves only to “sinners” and the “lost.” One should therefore view with alarm discussions of this question which, discovering that homosexuals are sinners, conclude that they are unfit for the ministry and, almost, for Christian community. Are we then necessarily to conclude that since homosexuals are sinners -- and healthy heterosexuals are less so -- that Christ died for homosexuals but not for us? Out of our own self-righteousness we therefore have condemned ourselves."
