  • I'm not homophobic I just don't support the gay lifestyle (meaning sex with a member of the same sex) I have a friend who is gay and I love him dearly. Just because I don't agree with his lifestyle doesn't mean I hate him. If my child were to turn out to be a lesbian I would still love her just wouldn't be happy with her lifestyle.

  • Explain. I'm looking for something more detailed than "love but not be happy with her lifestyle". I also didn't use the word hate.

  • I have to agree with Jquevara, kinda like if my daughter were to come home pregnant when hes like 14.Would I still love cherish and be willing to die for her, yes, but would I be happy with her, Not at all, there is a difference between acceptance and agreement.

  • I think people who say they wouldn't support their gay kids, would be surprised how THEY change as people when their child actually "comes out". Your entire perspective changes, and you realize that your love doesn't have limitations; but instead grows in ways you never imagined.

  • I guess well cross that bridge if we ever get there, but will pray so I never have to get to that bridge.

  • They would most likely disown their child or limit their interaction with them.
    That's how I've seen most homophobes deal with their gay children.

    Must be if all they can say is that they'll pray for them.

  • I think it's as simple as people being able to disagree with someone and still love them. There is nothing in this world my child could do that could ever make me stop loving him. He's still the little one who's kick I fell in love with. However, I could probably name hundreds of things he could do that I wouldn't agree with. It is his life, and my most basic purpose as his mother is to support him. I care much more about raising an honest, caring, supportive man, than I do about who he goes to bed with.
