Mary Griffith: Homosexuality is a sin. Homosexuals are doomed to
spend eternity in hell. If they wanted to change, they could be
healed of their evil ways. If they would turn away from temptation,
they could be normal again if only they would try and try harder if
it doesnt work. These are all the things I said to my son Bobby
when I found out he was gay. When he told me he was homosexual my
world fell apart. I did everything I could to cure him of his
sickness. Eight months ago my son jumped off a bridge and killed
himself. I deeply regret my lack of knowledge about gay and lesbian
people. I see that everything I was taught and told was bigotry and
de-humanizing slander. If I had investigated beyond what I was
told, if I had just listened to my son when he poured his heart out
to me I would not be standing here today with you filled with
regret. I believe that God was pleased with Bobbys kind and loving
spirit. In Gods eyes kindness and love are what its all about. I
didnt know that each time I echoed eternal damnation for gay
people each time I referred to Bobby as sick and perverted and a
danger to our children. His self esteem and sense of worth were
being destroyed. And finally his spirit broke beyond repair. It was
not Gods will that Bobby climbed over the side of a freeway
overpass and jumped directly into the path of an eighteen-wheel
truck which killed him instantly. Bobbys death was the direct
result of his parents ignorance and fear of the word gay. He
wanted to be a writer. His hopes and dreams should not have been
taken from him but they were. There are children, like Bobby,
sitting in your congregations. Unknown to you they will be
listening as you echo "amen" and that will soon silence their
prayers. Their prayers to God for understanding and acceptance and
for your love but your hatred and fear and ignorance of the word
gay, will silence those prayers. So, before you echo "amen" in your
home and place of worship. Think. Think and remember a child is
listening.
