I was reading an article
on Yahoo News
in which the dad
writes a letter to his anti-gay daughter
(who disowns her son)
giving her a piece of his mind.
Thus far, the letter has received 11,ooo likes.
If my child was gay
of course I wouldn’t disown him.
I wouldn’t try to convince
him to change.
If your child knows
the rights and wrongs
then they have chosen the option
that suits them.
I am not God
I cannot place judgement on anyone.
I wouldn’t consider my child a disgrace.
All I would make known is
his/her chosen act
will not be tolerated in my place.
We have to realize
that our children have minds of their own.
And some things
we shouldn’t try to change about them.
We have our lives to be accountable for
and they have theirs.
If you believe in God
then you wouldn’t practice
no forms of hate.
Discrimination is a form of hate.
