I think there is a difference between "honor" and choosing to keep them in your life. My dad was/is a horrible father to me. I would not go out of my way to disrespect him in public, but in no way is he a welcome part of my life. I think as children you are required to "honor" your parents, but as an adult you can chose who to honor. and if your parents are not honorable people, you are in no way required to do so.
