This past week I have been with my boys and my grand children. The first time we all have been together for a long time.

In fact I hope to never have to deal with it.
As I read about what some of you deal with makes it even more understandable as to why I should not be silent about the inclusion of the GLBT community in our faith.
I am uncomfortable reading about your relationships, I can only imagine the difficulty in family relationships coming to terms with reality. My oldest son once came home with a girl we all learned to hate, that was tough enough.

You may not know how you would react if one of your grandkids came out to you... but I do. You'd love him/her and you'd become an even more stalwart defender of equal rights than you are already.
I personally am glad that all 3 of my boys are straight... cuz at this point I'm in it for the grandchildren
but it always seemed like bad planning on God's part because I would have made a fantastic Dad of a gay son... anyway I'm hopin that at least one of my grandkids is gay because I will surely be ONE HELL OF A GRANDFATHER to a gay child !!
gay kids can and do grow up and bring home wonderful partners. they can and do make families and have children. They can and do have satisfying careers and can make you as proud as straight kids. the only bad part is having to watch ignorant homophobes disrespecting them.
Whatever brings you here to post... I'm glad you're here.
