I find it frustrating that some branches of Christianity and individual Christians themselves interpret the Bible in the way that they do thus promote homophobia, sex negativity and general bigotry. It alienates people like me who identify as a Christian but doesn't interpret the Bible in that way from the wider Christian community. Mind you, it is annoying when anyone assumes all Christians are conservative, homophobic and sex negative.

It is desirable to be part of a community of people that have similar beliefs to you, and often, you'll agree on all other aspects of life and religion except sex and relationships. This makes it tempting to try and change your views or those of the other party, however futile that may be. And once you realise that you have a fundamental incompatibility despite the fact you share very similar beliefs, it's easy to become frustrated by the rejection.
