Grandfather did the proper thing, has shown his love and care for the family, and left the door open for his daughter to make amends.
I don't approve of homosexuality, but I do acknowledge it is a state of nature. Were either my son or daughter "come out" to me, I don't have to
like it but I would still love them nonetheless. They are, after all, the product of my attempts to propagate the species. There may be some quibbles
initially but it would be something I feel I'm man enough to accept, given time. ... and probably not much time either.
And the same applies to the nephew my wife and I are currently taking care of. Though he's not quite of the age where sex and attraction are a
substantial part of his focus, when he decides to "choose sides" we will support his decision after the discussions regarding the changes in
lifestyles, the STD's and procreation are made and considered.
This does not change my opinion though, that the definition of marriage is a union between two of opposite gender and changing that should not be
done. However, a new term can be defined and legislated, as marriage has been legislated, permitting two of the same sex to have a similar
relationship with the same legal effects and consequences. Perhaps the term should be "union" and "marriage" as a term be abandoned....
