You're right, love is an emotion.
Love comes in different forms. To equate same sex love to pedophilia and incest is trying to compare a fork and a chopstick.
Quoting TigressLily: Love has no boundaries. However, homosexuality or bisexuality is not right. I love my mom, but I won't marry her. I love my daughter, but I'm not going to marry her. Same with my brother. There is no difference. I seriously do believe that a lot of people, gay or straight, have love all wrong. Just because you love someone, that does not mean you have to have sex with nor marry them. I will make sure my daughter knows that difference, along with God's law.

My kids know, too. We read Todd Parr books all the time. We read And Tango Makes Three. I love our gay friends and family members. I loved that my older son had three kids in his daycare class who had two Mommies. We have several families in our local adoption group who have two moms or two dads. I'm sad that my younger son's daycare is not as diverse, but very happy we're going to the home of one of the two mom families from my older son's daycare as a reunion and he'll get to see a family with gay parents.
I want my kids to be accepting of all families.
My kiddo understands that there isn't enough love in the world and that we need to appreciate it where we find it.
Quoting Anonymous: Yep. They also understand and embrace a wide definition of family.
I was very proud of my son a couple years back. My grandmother had died and my son asked what happened to her cat. I said that the cat went to live with a gay couple in Chicago. He said, "What difference does it make that they're gay, Mom? A gay couple is the same as any other couple."
I had to chuckle. He was totally right.
