Perfect Letter

This was posted by a fellow blogger, LuLu on October 3, 2013. I love the stance that the grandfather takes here on how we should always be there for and love our children, not turn our backs on them.

I don’t agree that children are born gay but I do believe that no matter the circumstance, you love, stand by and set a godly example for your children. Two wrongs don’t make a right here but I think you understand the fathers \ grandfathers point.

Don’t just read it here, check out her site Inside the Mind of LuLu pants. She writes about everyday stuff and keeps it real.

  1. My mom read this to me the other day from her facebook. It’s so beautiful and touching. I have two gay friends who both come from VERY religious families and they both agonized over telling their parents. One finally did last year and while they told him they would never support him dating anyone, they don’t treat him any differently than they did before. And the other still hasn’t come out to his family because he’s afraid of what his parents would do. Which is sad. I wish there were more people like this who stood up to family members who want to disown relatives for being gay.

    1. Its a shame that the greatest word spoken from the bible is Love and it’s something society does less of everyday, in an out of the churches. It is not our job to judge but to love and set an example – help one another work through things, understand and grow from each experience. As Christians that is our commission directed by God. I have not had to deal with this situation but if any of my children came to me and told me that they were gay, I wouldn’t treat them any different or disown them. Nothing good comes out of that. I hope your friends parents come together on this and do the right thing because a child is the greatest blessing and one day they may be picking out their nursing home. 🙂

      1. Exactly. And I think it’s part of the reason I’ve fallen out of love with the church is because it’s teachings conflict with themselves. But that’s why I adore Pope Francis and him getting back to basics of the Catholic religion…love, acceptance, helping the sick and poor. He’s a brilliant man and it makes me hopeful for the future of the church. If only more people acted out those principles…
