The blog FreedHearts recently shared a powerful Facebook post from a Christian mother, describing the journey that started when her twelve-year old son came out to her, and the tragic ending brought on by her lack of understanding and unwillingness to accept that her son was gay.
She describes the mistakes she made, led by her strict religious beliefs, which ultimately contributed to her son’s downward spiral. This is a story every parent should read regardless of faith or deeply held beliefs. It is a story of a mother’s unconditional love for her gay son who truly thought she was doing what was best for him, and is shared in the hopes that mothers and fathers around the world will learn to love and accept their children just as they are. more
