Interesting Yahoo Question


I thought that this Yahoo Answers question was quite interesting...my response is below. I've had friends kill themselves over things like this and really hope this woman can accept the situation in a good manner...here's the link: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090411141239AAoFxeL&cp=2



Son brought home a BOY from college . . . what should I do?




I'm assuming that your son is GAY. The best thing that you can do is accept the situation for what it is, even if it is not your cup of tea. I am thinking about studying to be a pastor and I am always hearing about it being unnatural, wrong, immoral, sinful, etc., but there are people who kill themselves over homosexuality every day. So, love him, accept him, care for him, and let him worry about the repercussions.

NOTE: I realize that I might have just stepped into a minefield discussing homosexuality. Well, yes I do believe that homosexuality is wrong. It is "not God's best" as Joel Osteen so eloquently put it on Larry King. However, instead of stuffing it down his throat and preaching at him, I believe that a quiet life lived in front of him and private prayer is sufficient to help him realize the error in his ways.

I agree with you. The best we can do to him is to love him and pray for him. His behaviour is natural for him. I think only prayer can resolve such issues.
