It rather upsets me that homosexuality is criminal in India. Conversely, America has made great progress regarding same-sex marriage. But here's my question -- what are the opinions on it in the Sikh community? I really want to believe that it's accepted in Sikhism, and that there is no stigma or hate regarding it...but I have a feeling that I'll only be let down. Thoughts?
Hello everyone, I have found myself in a rather unique situation (well to me at least). Let me start by saying that I am not a Sikh, neither am I Punjabi. I recently started a "relationship" with a man who is Sikh (from Punjab). My partner is religious and has told me that at some stage he would like to take Amrit, as a result of this I have made a concerted effort to start learning about Sikhism as it such an important part of his life. Anyway, I understand that dating is not ideal in Sikhism and I must mention that we are not living together, nor do we share a physical relationship. We have both spoken about this and want to get married first. He has been honest with me and mentioned that he has had physical relationships with a quite a few other woman, the problem I am dealing with is that the majority of these woman were prostitutes. I feel that I cannot judge him for what he has done before I met him, and I can see that he is trying to make an effort to change a lot of his habits. However, in all honesty, I don't see how he can think of taking Amrit after having used prostitutes. Ok well, I hope this makes sense, basically I want to know what the stance is on prostitution and also should he repent for what he has done? Thank you
