Do Christians Hate Gay People?: A Parent's Guide to Discussing Tough Questions about Homosexuality

A Christian parents' guide to open and honest discussions about homosexuality Does God Hate Gay People? Christian parents with school-age children need to be prepared to answer this question as well as myriad other challenges today's increasingly pro-homosexual culture keeps throwing at kids. Why can't gays get married? Who says gay sex is wrong? Does the Bible actually say there's anything wrong with homosexuality? What about the two men next door? Doesn't their relationship count, too? This is perhaps the most complicated and contentious issue Christians face in today's culture. Most churches are poorly equipped to handle it; parents are even less prepared. The good news is that parents need not have pat answers ready before they dive into conversations with their teens and preteens on this difficult topic. Learning together--parents struggling through these issues alongside their kids and leading them to biblical answers--has relational benefits. Answers are important, though, so manageable, nontechnical answers to common questions surrounding this issue are provided, as well as a guide to further resources. Readers will also learn ideas on how to guide children in thorny issues like, How do I relate to my friend who says she's gay?
