My teenage daughter has been in a relationship with another female for 4-5 months now. While I believe it may be a phase (she's had boyfriends in the past), I really have no issues if she is gay. However, her gf's mother is absolutely against it, and has made it known with very disparaging remarks. I love my dd unconditionally and will stand behind her no matter what. My dd's feelings are very hurt by the other mothers comments, and I've explained not all people will agree with her choice.
My question is...How would you react if your child told you they were gay?
I can't believe this is still an issue for people & I've never understood why who people choose to be bothers anybody else..? Sorry that your daughter & her gf have to deal with her mom being that way. That can't be easy. Hopefully she'll learn to accept it.

[quote name="MomGoneGreen470" id="0"]It is against God and nature BUT as a Christian it is our duty to hate the sin and love the sinner (which I am a sinner) ........ So support but do not encourage, love but do not approve, have their back from a distance so they can learn. Whoa it sounds like hey be a loving parent and all will come to pass. FYI .... I have plenty of friends who thought they were gay but came to realize it is just society pushing a pagan non natural way of life.
"they will hate you because they first hated me". Mmmmm who said that? [/quot
Plenty of friends? I somehow highly doubt that. It's very unusual for someone to wake up one day and no longer be gay. Society doesn't push homosexuality, its quite the opposite.

my mother is gay. i've had girlfriends. and i'm a witch. do you want to start bashing pagans now? just so you know the christians have killed innocent people for thousands of yrs for a religion that includes aspects taken from paganism.
I would be perfectly fine with it. Her dad and I have actually discussed this and we both would love it if she were, that way we wouldn't have to deal with any bone head boys. LOL! I am bisexual myself.
as long as my kid is happy and treated right by who ever they want to be with then yes i would be happy and jumping for joy.and its people like you who shouldnt have kids if you cant accept them for who they are
Did I say anything is wrong with being gay. I dont care if you happy your kid is gay I will not be jumping for joy or throwing a party.
well it doesnt matter what YOU want it should only matter what THEY want and there is NOTHING wrong with being gay
No but I don't think it will hurt. I did have the pastor pray over them when they were born. And that was one of my prayers. To each they own but I dont want my kids to be gay.
Pray the gay away? Do you really think it works that way?
I would be disappointed and try to pray the gay away

Do you realize with every judgmental act you portray that your turning yet another soul away from the Lords kingdom? YOU will be answering to that.
i am so sorry that parents will accept this kind of behavior from thier kids..... I would never accept it! Dont you ppl want ur kids to go to Heaven? yet u encourage their sexual sinful desires.... wow
