It’s awkward for our parents to talk about gays, or lesbians, at least in my family it is frowned upon. I have never had a gay cousin, although I’m pretty sure one of them is, because it’s too much of a gamble to come out of the closet. I hope that our generation will be more understanding and open to gays. Whether or not you disagree with it, you should respect it. There is more open hatred towards gays and lesbians than towards child molesters or petefilers. If it goes against your religion, then don’t you commit the sin, but respect the decision of others. Everyone is always so willing to point out that being gay is against God and is forbidden in the bible, but God also granted us free will and very clearly said that we are not to judge, because duh! We’re not God. We need to be respectful.
