My young adult son just recently informed me that he has a boyfriend. I am struggling quite a bit with this, because I believe that anything other than 1 man and 1 woman is wrong. However, even though I don't approve of non-straight relationships, I still want to be supportive of my son (and, as difficult as this is for me to say right now, his partner too).
I believe the Bible says homosexual relationships are wrong; but I also don't believe that Jesus would have treated homosexuals poorly either. I have an incredibly soft heart and am a naturally compassionate person. I try really hard to treat others as I would want to be treated, but I'm having a hard time "getting over" the fact that I still feel this is wrong. My son knows this about me, and tries to be respectful by not shoving stuff about it in my face. I worry though that if or when his partner (whether the current partner, who lives in a different state, or a future partner) is around it will become a lot more difficult for me. Can anyone offer any advice / suggestions / ect that could potentially help me accept this? I truly do want my son to feel as though I'm supporting him!
