How do I accept my sexuality as a gay religious furry?

I've been trying to accept my sexuality (gay) as a part of me for a while now, and it has had its ups and downs. On one hand, it's not exactly what I had in mind when I started out in life and and unfortunately I have had to give up a lot: A traditional marriage where everyone attends, having biological children with me as the father, etc. On the other hand, I'm eager to accept my sexuality while having to deal with as little bigotry as possible (even though it is inevitable). How does one be religious and gay at the same time?
