  • No I would always accept my child, my love for my child is unconditional, that doesnt mean to say that I would be happy about it, but I would accept and move on

  • Oh Lord, I hope there aren't any moms out there like that. I would accept my daughter no matter if she is gay or straight or purple or turns into a banana!

  • I hope there aren't many. I'll respect anyone's views about homosexuality, negative or positive, including those founded on religious beliefs, but I think when a belief like that becomes so overpowering you would turn on your own child, it's no longer a belief. It's a damn tragedy. My daughter came out not very long ago, and even if it's not always easy for me, it's her happiness that matters. I could never love my baby any less.

  • I can't even imagine not accepting my children based on their sexual orientation. I really couldn't care less, honestly.

  • I agree, my kids are my kids no matter what and my love for them see's no shame in who they are or who they will be.

  • I have a gay brother so if one of my sons said he was gay I would accept him. My mother on the other hand is one of Jehovah's witnesses and she would not accept my brother if she knew he was gay.

  • My religious beliefs are that being gay is against God's Word. If my son told me he was gay, I would be disappointed, but I would not disown him.

  • Of course I would love my daughter. My God, by the time they're old enough to even have a sexual preference....shouldn't that love be set in stone????? My daughter IS my love and who she may like to kiss will never never change that.

  • My cousin is dealing with this now. The family, such as his mom and uncle found out that he's bi. His uncle told him that he doesn't want to deal with him anymore.
