I would love them but never would they bring their lovers into my home and expect me to feel comfortable with that. They would know better than to ever think that I would allow that. I've taught them the biblical way and they know homosexuality is a choice and we are not born with the desire to lay w/ our own sex. Hope none of you ladies are having a heart attack right now...LOL!

Hmmm, it's comments like these that give Christians a bad name. I am a Christian and I believe homosexuality is a sin BUT I was also taught to hate the sin not the sinner so how could you not accept the lover into your home? You're right, sin is sin but hating people is a sin as well - love your neighbor as yourself. Jesus ate with prostitues and thieves, why couldn't you eat with a gay person? How would the gay person ever learn about God without Christians who would be willing to let them into their home?

Sorry, this just makes me mad when Christians get a bum rap for other Christians who are close minded.

I would also let their SO into our home but wouldn't allow them to share a bedroom but neither would I let me unmarried child share a bedroom with their heterosexual SO.

So, I have to agree with this.

All kidding aside, I truly hope that your kids are straight. The reaction you describe -loving them but shunning their partner, and thinking that homosexuality is a choice, would cause you to lose that child. Homosexuals frequently refer to situations like that as being very heartbreaking to them, a major reason why they so often hide it. I truly hope for you and your kids you are never forced to treat them like that, as you would both be losing out on a lot. And "reading up" - educating yourself about homosexuality beyond what your church says is not the least bit laughable. I am sad for you.


Calimari, can you please be a little less attacking in your posts? I honestly mean this in the nicest way, I've been reading them all today and I just feel like we can't have a conversation without you saying something like "I am sad for you" or something along those lines. I've kept out of it all day, but I feel like we should be able to tone it down. We should all be able to post our opinions TO each other, not AT each other. I would really like to be able to have a nice conversation instead of an argument. We all have our morals and values, which no one here is going to change. Thank you

I would love them no matter what. I would treat them no differently.

To You antigay Christians , Have You Read Barbara Johnsons Book Stick a Geranium in Your Hat and Be happy?

She Had two Great Boys whom Lived Life in her Christian eyes , Only they both were Killed , and She was Left with one Homosexual Living Son who she Had disowned yrs. Before.
I Forget the whole story ... But that is the Jist of Her Life.


Anyway For me , I STRONGLY feel a Person is Born Gay ,

I Can't Imagine why a Person would Chose it If You Know anyone gay , and One who has Struggled with it for Yrs. - You would know it is Not Chosen.

I Have One Gay Friend and there is NO way he would Chose this Life, It was tough for him for Yrs. He wanted a Woman and Kids . He wanted to fit into his "normal " family.

Anyway - back to the Question ,

I think whatever my kids are they are now ,
SO - NO Never ever would I Disown them.

i also Will never Forget , My Friends Bro in Law - Tough Macho Major anti Gay Guy whose Daughter was Dying Of Leukemia- And He was So Ashamed Of His Yrs. Of saying He would Disown his Kids - and at that moment he would've taken all Gay Kids if he could Save his Little girls Life.

I totally agree! Except I am not sure about the closed-minded part. It is not a word I like to use, and right now can't really get across why. I think mabye it is because that is what a Christian is usally called for believing what they believe. Am I making any sense?

I will accept my child for what ever they choose. I have a lot of gay friends that I know they have cried on my shoulder wishing they could be "normal†It is not something they asked for it is just whom they are...

As for the religious side of things. Who is to say their god is better than someone else’s or there beliefs

You just made an interesting thought - and maybe I'm reading too much into it, bare with me I'm preparing to go to the dentist and I'm attempting to distract myself! But what makes "a close-minded Christian"? That would be an interesting thread ... though maybe there has been too many "interesting threads" as it is, at least for today!

Love is unconditional. I love my kids regardless of circumstances.
