Yep - I totally agree, Linda. A few years ago, my youngest daughter (20 or 21 at the time) told me about a young woman she'd met that had expressed an interest in her. My daughter was contemplating dating her and had an obvious crush on her. I told my daughter that the only important things were: 1. She treats you well 2. That you're happy, whatever choice you make The crush was short-lived and my daughter didn't pursue a dating relationship with the young woman. If she had, I would have been supportive as long as the above criteria had been met, just as I would want my daughter to be treated well and to be happy in a heterosexual relationship. Regarding the teaching "love the sinner, hate the sin" that was mentioned upthread: While I agree that the spirit of this teaching is applicable in circumstances where a crime has been committed, I don't consider a loving relationship between same sex partners or opposite-sex partners to be a transgression of any kind (morally or otherwise), as long as both partners are of the age of consent and are conducting themselves in a responsible manner. It seems to me that, quite often, stone-throwers (the parents/grandparents in this case) are the ones in need of self-examination and the ones in need of casting out the obstructions from their own eyes.
