Humanity…

This here is just one quote from the top 100 of “Greatest Quotes from fundamentalist christian chat rooms”.

Just recently my son Bobby came out to me. I had been worried for awhile. His teachers said most of his grades were slipping and he seemed depressed and withdrawn.

Bobby said he’d been hiding it for awhile because he was afraid I would reject him. I sat him down and told him that I loved him and that God loved him, but that his salvation was in danger if he did not resist his unnatural tempations. I told him how being gay would mean he would live a shorter life, and that if he couldnt change his orientation he could be celibate like most the ex-gays are. He started crying saying something along the lines of “I knew you wouldnt understand! You’re just like everyone else!” before running to his room and slamming the door.

What did I do wrong? I dont want to lose my son, but I fear I already have. I talked it over with his therapist, who had the ludicrous idea that homosexuality was unchangable and that trying to repress could lead to lots of psychological damage (I’ve dropped him and will try to be finding another therapist with more moral beliefs). I wouldnt be surprised if he’s the one who’s feeding my son all the homosexual propaganda about how its ‘ok’ to be gay. That, or how homosexuality has engulfed the media, making it seem ‘cool’ and ‘hip’ and how they were just another oppressed minority. You didnt have to worry about seeing two men making out on tv at my age! I dont want to sound like a fanatic, but Im worried what other effects will come out of this increasingly secular, immoral society obsessed with filth.

Am I too late? Or is it possible to save my son

It appears the boy later took his own life. So much for religion.

  1. God’s disclaimer: God loves ya – but he didn’t make you who you are.

    btw, there used to be this series on American cable channel Showtime called “Huff” with Hank Azaria (recommendable). And the very first episode is much like this. Azaria plays the therapist and the boy is about ready to tell his parents… needless to say, they don’t take it so well. But I’m sure they still loved every bit of him… some of those bits being of his brain which ended up getting splattered over the therapist’s wall and door…

    “Huff” was also one of the first things I had to think of. But that’s fiction. This here thing is apparently real.
    I’ll never be able to wrap my head around such incidents. What kind of fucked up parent do you have to be to not accept your kids for who they are, religious or not?
