I have never heard of a parent wishing to be given an LGBT son or daughter. I have heard fathers over the years say they would disown or beat their son if they thought they were gay. I have even heard a few say they would drive them to the woods and shoot them. Terrible.

But why is it such a curse? Why is it not embraced? After all, if they were born with this difference then that difference came from you, did it not? Are not your genes passed on to them? Or is it suddenly a God issue? You pass on the hair, cancer, diabetes, eye color gene and God curses you with a gay or trans kid? What kind of hypocrisy is that?

Parents can be just as proud of their LGBT child for their LGBT status as the child should be. After all, the child never asked for it. Why should it be a bad thing? Who says its a bad thing? Society is comprised of US. Not just religious figures. I am highly religious, Christian, and I do NOT agree that homosexuality is wrong. I also do NOT agree that it is a curse from God. 

I choose to adore it, embrace it, nurture it. We decide, not someone else, we do. 

Be proud

With Love
