Daily Hope

Within you there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself. The spiritual life does not remove us from the world but leads us deeper into it. Religion, science, and spirituality help us make sense of the world. Life without at least one of them is a lonely and confusing place.

RFGN | The Secret Contribution of Homosexuals in Homophobia

As homosexuals emerged as a community big enough to be recognized as a community, homophobia has also taken a toll. It appears to be diminishing slowly, but it still has a long way to go. Homosexuals appeared as "different" beings. It is in human nature to take some time to accept the change. Human beings are naturally designed to fear something they know very little about. The term used for it is "the unchartered territory."...

RFGN | How to stand together against Homophobia

In many cultures, being anything other than heterosexual is looked down on because it goes against their morals. The traditionalist approach to life has narrowed down their vision, and they are unable to accept people who are different. That is the same case for identities other than sexuality, such as race or ethnicity. Rainbow Fellowship believes in the acceptance of all people and wishes to end homophobia, a creation that has allowed people to abuse...

Anal sex is an act in which two people have sexual intercourse through the anal cavity. Though equally popular in heterosexual and lesbian couples, anal sex is commonly associated with gay couples.
