    Read some really crazy article this week, where christian parents basically made their high school aged kid homeless and abandoned when he came out to them... I know christians have some fucked up views on homosexuality, but it is really that extreme?

    Disowned. Don't need no serial killers, Communists, or faggots in my house.

    I'm not exactly sure. No, I do not approve of that lifestyle, and as long as they live in my house they will not be practicing that lifestyle, just like they will not be practicing any other lifestyle that goes against my values as their parent. Outside of my home, what they do is their business. I think any real concerned and loving parent would have a desire to be in their child's life no matter what lifestyle they were living or whether or not they approved. No I do not approve of homosexuality, but all have fallen short and forgiveness and long-suffering are foundations of my faith. If God had abandoned me when I was living in sin.

    Either kill them or throw them out of the house. Right wingers only have two choices. Everyone knows that.

    This likely has less to do with faith and more to do with fear and ignorance.

    Because you certainly epitomize tolerance.

    I'm guessing you have no trouble finding yourself all alone, loser.

    A parent who has taken the time to know his/her offspring is often aware of a child's preference long, long before the child itself. The trick is to let it play out and be supportive and loving whichever way the chips fall.

    And I DO consider myself a Christian.

    Of sorts.
