What should we say to our college-age son who claims to be a "gay Christian? Worst of all, he's been sharing these ideas with his brother who, by the way, is disgusted with him , and he wants to explain them to his younger siblings as well. At some moments I'm so angry I could scream. Other times I just sit and cry.
Responding to a "Gay Christian" in the Family
If Your Child Says, "I'm Gay"
A flood of emotions overtakes the parents and spills over to their son or daughter. Their initial and subsequent responses will accomplish one of two things -push the child away or pull the child toward the parents. God went looking for them! Genesis Express grief with, not anger toward your child!

From time to time I hear about Christian parents disowning, cutting off, or permanently shunning a son or daughter who adopts a gay lifestyle. Is that the right thing to do? Is this a requirement of biblical faithfulness?
What can we say to our teenage son who has just announced to us that he's gay? I'm devastated by this revelation. At some moments I'm so angry I could scream. Other times I just sit and cry. We love our son, but we don't want this kind of influence in our home we have younger kids in the house.
