indeed Raven..and the saddest thing. Far too many people still believe that someone who is anti-gay due to religious beliefs will magically or slowly change if their child/relative comes out. I'm sure we can all attest to knowing that isn't the case. To families like Tom's and my friend Zach whom I mentioned a page ago,nothing will trump their religious beliefs. And if that means throwing your child out of the house onto the streets,telling him/her they wish they were dead etc..so be it.
Jeebus will reward them when they get to Heaven or so they think.
