The intersection of religion and homosexuality is a complex issue indeed. There are homosexuals in every culture and religion in the world. Unfortunately, our common humanity is divided up by dogma,  scripture and institutions of organized faith that reject sexual varieties and endorse discrimination and persecution against gay people.

Listed here are numerous reports and commentaries from several religious perspectives regarding homosexuality. In general, gay Buddhists seem to have the easiest time with their religious system. Gay Muslims have the most difficult, with Jews and Christians in between. None of them welcome gays with open hearts.
