Would you love them unconditionally? Yes

Would you try to change them? No

Would you disown them? No

That pretty much sums it up for me.

I'd love them unconditionally. Children are children.

i'd tell him to stop being silly, that it was just a phase and he'd outgrow it. then i'd look for the deeper issue: is this his way of showing his understanding that i, his father, never really loved him? if so, why does he have to be so *ridiculous* about it. is he looking for attention? if so, this is a silly way to go about it.

if he continued to choose to act upon his unnatural desires and continued with the practice of homosexuality, i'd give him a choice: either he can go to the Exodus ministry and they, with God's help and prayer, will help him conquor this terrible affliction; or, he can leave my house, immediately, and be cut off forever because i sure as hell didn't raise no damn perverts or queers.

unconditional love, never disown or try to change

That's all I ever wanted from my parents, well that and some affirmation that I'm a good person and worthy of love. The fact that I'm straight should never make me any more worthy of love or acceptance from my parents or anyone else.

One of my children is gay. I told them they needed t do whatever they had to to be happy and content. My feelings towards that child are the same now as the first moment he was held.

Irvine...i think..... is giving his own expirience.

*HUGS* Irvine ..that must have been so shitty.

Doozer...do you have kids of your own? I mean your gay....but gays may or may not have kids.
cuz i think its interesting the how the answers would vary depending on if you had kids or not.
- my neice said she was gay for a while and I know she had gay relations with other girls...this was a few years back -
(shes 20 now) and it was sorta shockin in a way
my Mom ( her grandma) was like " I dont thnk Sarash is fully baked yet" meaning.....Sarah didnt know what sexual orientation she was yet......but then she just startin goin with guys and now wants to marry one...to make a long story short.

I think teenagers today or more sexually expirimentational (<- is this a word?) because of what they are exposed to...girls esp are made to feel as if they have to be sexy...and parents are afraid of saying anything to them...all parents want is to protect thier children...and sometimes fear and frustration lead to anger and resentment and laying blame and its those things that lie close to the surface ...acceptance comes later...and hopefully reconciliation

ill stop my ramblin.....
