Camila; As far as I know Zen doesn't promote homosexuality but nor discriminate either. In any case my question to you is; Why homosexuals wouldn't have a chance to practice zen as everyone else?. Why they should be denied the right of spirituality in whatever form or tradition this appeal to them?. What is exactly your complain about?.
I have no idea of the way homosexuals feel or think. It's a territory completely unknown to me. Therefore, I try no to make judgements about something I don't know what is about except that people from the same sex are atracted to each others and that they are not attracted to people from the same sex.
