I Did It!!!!!
Well my cousin, Debbie, invited me and my wife to her youngest son's wedding. She said that if anyone had a problem with two lesbians at the wedding, they could come talk to her. I had no idea who all would be there, but nevertheless my wife and I both went. It was the first Baptist church we had been since coming out 3 years ago. Most every member of my family minus a few, were there. I calmly walked up to my aunts and uncles, and introduced my wife as such. I smiled as their expressions went from a friendly smile to a sudden drop in the jaw. They just stared as I went from person to person, introducing my wife. My cousin invited me to sit behind her and her husband, and we did. My mother showed up some time later, with my sister. I went up to my mom and she just stared at me in shock, almost like,"You dare to show up in a church with your lesbian lover?" She said hi to me and that was about it. They sat two rows behind us and as soon as man and wife were declared and left the sanctuary, my mother and sister slipped out without saying goodbye and left.
At the reception, my cousin said, "I don't care what your mother does or says, I love you and both of you are welcome in my home anytime." She invited us in advance for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
As we left for the night, my cousin whispered in my ear, "I really like her (meaning my wife)" and I said, "If my mom and dad gave her half a chance they would like her, too, but to them she is the sneaky lesbian who seduced their daughter and led her into a life of sin." My cousin laughed.
If everyone cared and nobody cried, if everyone loved and nobody lied, if everyone shared and swallowed their pride, we'd see the day when nobody died. IF EVERYONE CARED/Nickelback
