Faith

I've grown up in catholic, baptist, and christian up bringing (including school). Needless to say as I got older and realized that hmm I don't think I'm the right fit for these religions due to their firm stand on homosexuailty and my personal opinion on most of these people being narrow minded and hypocrites. I'm 26 years old and haven't belonged 2 a religion since about 14 or 15. I just learned about the Baha'I belief and have become increasingly interested, but I'm still a little unsure if the religion preaches acceptance of all then what's the deal with gay followers. I am still working thru my own acceptance of myself as a gay man and am not fully out but I realize that I am not straight nor bi @ this point of my life. I would really like to join an organization that would help me become a better person and it not conflict with my faith. Is this the right choice for me? Throughout my life though I have strayed away from the church I still believe that to have true happiness and fulfillment you must have some sort of a spiritual support (for sanity sakes lol). If anyone has any advice or comments please feel free.
