Do you hate those who disagree with your lifestyle?
I was reading a post last night- didn't answer it because I wanted to think about it. Couldn't find it this morning, but it was about someone angered bc a lttle girl told their daughter she couldn 't come over to play bc her mom was gay.
The responses to the post were in favor of allowing their children to play at a home where the parents were gay.
I wanted to think about this, because the answering posts were full of hatred and personal attacks on those who wouldn't, which seemed a tad hypocritical to me.
The real issue is, if someone has a lifestyle that you disagree with and would not want their child to be influenced toward that lifestyle-should they let them play at that house.? the answer is no- of course not. So why would that be any different for those who do not believe that the gay lifestyle is healthy and do not want their child coming inot contact with it on a regualr basis?
If I knew the people, and I knew they respected my objections to that, then and only then would I allow my child over to play. Same thing with booze in the house- same thing with cigarrette smoking, same thing with porn. And I really would not allow my daughter over with two gay men, just cause I do not trust men in particular with thier horny thoughts.
If you knew your kid's friend's mom was a Bible thumpin evangelical and you did not want your child proselitized, would you allow them to play at their house- most likely not.
So lets not be hating those that just have a problem with your chosen lifestyle and the way they want to insulate their children. Do not call them haters of you- they just don't want your life style shoved down their throats and their values destroyed in thier kids' eyes. YOu would be the same way if you thought they would disparage you to your children because of your lifestyle.When it comes to raising our children, lets just allow us to have our freedoms.
