“If I Have Gay Children: Four Promises From A Christian Pastor Parent”

In his post he outlines the following four items.

 

 

“1) If I have gay children, you’ll all know it.”

 

 ———————————————————–

“2) If I have gay children, I’ll pray for them.”

 

“I won’t pray for them to be made “normal”. I’ve lived long enough to know that if my children are gay, that is their normal.”

 

“I won’t pray that God will heal or change or fix them. I will pray for God to protect them; from the ignorance and hatred and violence that the world will throw at them, simply because of who they are. I’ll pray that He shields them from those who will despise them and wish them harm; who will curse them to Hell and put them through Hell, without ever knowing them at all. I’ll pray that they enjoy life; that they laugh, and dream, and feel, and forgive, and that they love God and humanity.”

 

“Above all, I’ll pray to God that my children won’t allow the unGodly treatment they might receive from some of His misguided children, to keep them from pursuing Him.”

 ——————————————–

 

“3) If I have gay children, I’ll love them.”

 ———————————————————-

“4) If I have gay children, most likely; I have gay children.”

 

“If my kids are going to be gay, well they pretty much already are.”

 

“God has already created them and wired them, and placed the seed of who they are within them. Psalm 139 says that He, “stitched them together in their mother’s womb”. The incredibly intricate stuff that makes them uniquely them; once-in-History souls, has already been uploaded into their very cells.”

 

“Because of that, there isn’t a coming deadline on their sexuality that their mother and I are working feverishly toward. I don’t believe there’s some magical expiration date approaching, by which time she and I need to somehow do, or say, or pray just the right things to get them to “turn straight”, or forever lose them to the other side.”

You can read the rest if you wish I’ve included only those items I found interesting in his post.

 

While I understand his passion I have to question why he supports sexual suicide? After all what is the great benefits to have a lesbian daughter or gay son?

 

As a Father of three. Two daughters and one son what would I do if any of my own kids ‘joined’ the gay lifestyle.

 

Here is my own personal list.

 

 

1 I Love my kids because they are my product from my love for my wife and from our marriage. I will unlikely try to force them out of my home or do abusive things to them if they became lesbian or gay. When Christians or others do that they make their children their enemy and give further proof of our ‘intolerance’ to their ways, Even if they are wrong.

 

—————————————————-

2 I like gay men and lesbians as co-workers and those who willingly chose to be friendly around me. However. I HATE the fraud of lgbt philosophy and propaganda in the media. I HATE the lack of information on diseases and cancers that lgbt persons can get if they don’t use protection.

 

————————————-

3 Pray for my kids.

  1. a) For their Salvation
  2. b) For their protection not only from stds but also from the REAL criminal hate-mongers who actually use physical violence against gays and lesbians.
  3. c) That they turn from their sins and accept that they donot have to be gay. God doesn’t make people gay… only people do.

 

————————————————————–

4 Have MANY talks about sexuality, stds, cancers and all other health problems associated with the gay lifestyle.

——————————————————–

As a parent to 3 teens I have to provide information and life experience to each of them. This experience can be helpful due to me living a fairly long life at this point and seeing public and private life change thanks due to lgbt friendly laws and more. I am thankful that my kids listen to me and they consider or will consider what I’ve told them and what experiences I have had around those lost in the lgbt maze.
