Care to engage in some thoughtful dialog?

Imagine this: 
A child (let’s say 17 or 18) comes home and tells their conservative, religious parents that they are gay. In your mind wrestle with the hypothetical reaction of the parents. Hold it.

Now let’s think for a moment that a similar child comes home and tells their liberal, atheist parents that they decided to follow Jesus and become a Christian. Think of their reaction. 

Now, compare the two. What do you think is different about the parents’ reactions? What would be similar? What do you think would be right or wrong about either of them?

I don’t want to focus on the stereotypes that I listed, just on the reaction of the parents.

Thoughts?

If you really want to live as if there are no, or few moral absolutes, as if people should have the liberty to do as they want, then you must allow the conservative the liberty to hold their positions just as you do. You have no philosophical grounds on which to tell them they are wrong for the positions they hold. Liberalism is about liberty, the liberty to think and believe and express whatever you want.
