Actually I am asking you a very sensitive question.But I think it is an important topic to discuss.I asked this same question to my friends.But most of them gave me some negative replies.Some said that they would throw out their child out from their home,others said that they will lock them in the house forever.However some of my friend asnwered that it would not bother them and they would keep it private and they will not let others to know about it. Would you bother it?Would you welcome your child if you know that your child is a gay?

My son is gay. And all I want for him is happiness with a man that he can love forever. And no, I would never, ever hide my son away. As long as he is safe and happy, I am happy.

I would continue to love my child but I would make it a point to express my feeling about the choice that he / she made.

Sexuality is not a choice. As long as you continue to think that way, there can be no communication.

I would still love my child just as much as i have always loved them and continue on as normal. There is nothing wrong with being gay, they just fancy the same gender. One of my best friendis is gay and i have no problem with him. I even go to gay bars etc with him and my other friends

I would be fine with it. I have a gay family member and I find that he is no less a person than anyone else. My husband on the other hand says that if we ever had a gay son he would disown him. He really has a problem with gays. I am not one to tell him he shouldn't feel that way so I just ignore it. He says that our son could be around as long as he wasn't there.

I believe being gay is not inborn or natural. It only depends on the upbringing of the parents to their children.Who is to blame if their sons or daughters became homosexual?I guess it's the parents. The parents should always take care of their young ones as early as possible. They should know all the signs of their son's actions if he is pron to being gay or not. They should always show him the values and right attitude to grow as a man if he is a boy and a woman if she is a girl. Parents should know this so that this can be prevented. Goodluck!

I would support my child as much as I could as a parent. Gay people have a hard enough time in the world. They can't help who they like so why should parents give them such a hard time about it. No matter what you say or do they can't change how they feel.

I have a son and a daughter. My daughter is 20 and my son is 14. To tell you the truth it would absolutely break my heart to find out such a thing from either of them, but they are both my kids and I love them dearly. Only with the Lord's help would I be able to get through something like that. I would still love them but you can rest assured I would be having some long talks with them and praying with them and for them because they both know that this is wrong. They would still be welcome in our home but the partner would not be.

SheilaLee, Please tell me when you decided you were heterosexual. Also, it appears your only veiw of homoesexuality comes from the bible. Did you know that your religion is not the religion of the entire world? How can you judge another persons lifestyle without knowing anything about it? Because of the way YOU interprit the bible? There are many ways to translate the bible. Hitler loved the bible, too. Im not talking bad about Christianity. Just be carefull what parts you decide you want to listen to for the sake of pure convenience. It might help to do some research about sociology in general before you pass such sweeping (and scientifcly proven false) statements.

Unfortunately, I have never heard an arguement against homosexuality that did not involve religion. Anytime you bring up gay in any venue, you are going to have to deal with religion. But I'll try to behave myself.
