Question: are gay and lesbians welcomed in the dojo or temple?


I was asked this kind of question from time to time so I thought is good to post an answer here:

All people without exception are welcomed in the dojo or temple if their reason for being there is to listen to Amida Dharma and receive shinjin (faith). This should be very well understood.

But if you come to the dojo and tell me „I am gay”, I will reply, „did I asked you something?”
If you also come to the dojo and tell me, „I am heterosexual”, I will give you the same reply, „did I asked you something?”
