Sure they would, if not **bleep** them.
If I had a child and they came out, I would respect that. I would like my child to make good choices in life; Homosexuality is not a choice, but coming out is a brave choice.
"How do you prove that you exist...? Maybe we don't exist..."
Mine wouldn't. Infact my mom already made it clear if I was that I couldn't live with her.
Another question is if your child came out would you still want to be involved with them, and if you are religious, how would you handle the situation?
Im not gay so I never had to find out but I think they would.
If my child was gay it wouldn't change how I feel about them or treat them.
My parents absolutely would. Funny story, I have issues dealing with fearing rejection, so naturally when I was an older teenager, and I had never brought any ladies around, my parents wondered. Finally they just asked "son, you know if you're gay, we wouldn't love you any less and we wouldn't care". So I cleared up the confusion and indirectly found out that if I was gay, it wouldn't be an issue :-D.
As for me, of course I wouldn't give care, straight or gay, who my kid chose to love. It helps that I have never been religious though, this homophobia thing seems to be a strictly religious thing. I don't have that problem.
Brace the floodgates, a storm is comin'!
You overestimate us religious nutjobs.
This months old sig image will remain till the end of days.
I don't know I haven't told them yet.
Secretly, I wanted my daughter to be gay. I know I'm terrible. But, c'mon you know the getting pregnant thing.
Well, I'm a happy grandfather as well.
Now if he were gay. I would fear for him. It's the bigotry that's scary when you're a parent or a grandparent.
Can't be there for them all of the time.
On a side note. I heard a story. Don't know if it was a rumor.
In Jamaica they were trying to organize a gay parade like in NYC.
People were not happy. I was told that machetes sold out almost immediately.
The prime minister got wind of this and stopped any kind of planning.
Edit: This was some years ago. I can't say when if it was true.
