A few months ago my cousin - a highly religious girl - posted a status stating that she is extremely disappointed that she won't be enrolling her future unborn son in to boy scouts.
Why? Because they allow gay children in.
Naturally, I debated with her, in which her mother joined in, talking about how homosexual actions are a "sin against god."
I then pointed out many other "sins" against god (i.e: eating pork, or wearing clothing of two separate fabrics, etc. etc.)
My aunt's response? "It doesn't matter; to sin is to sin."
I...I don't even understand what she was attempting to argue...But she then went on to talk about how we get our morals from god, from the bible, asking where I get my morals from if I support gay rights so strongly (they don't know I'm atheist).
My father joined in then. Though he is my aunt's brother, and is Christian and doesn't know of my lifestyle choice either, he instantly stepped in to say "she get's them from me" and went on to say that he raised me right, that he supports me, is proud that I stood my ground, and that my sense of moral should never be questioned.
The moral of this story? Always support your children. If you must place your faith in anything, place it in your children, and how you raised them. Be proud if they stand their ground, and have their back if someone is knocking against them. Even if you don't agree with their opinion (which thankfully, my father does) you do everything you can to help them stand for what they believe in.
