Well, and also, it leaves virtually no room to show your brother the love of Christ. We were ALL unrepentant sinners until we repented.Don't need to normalize... Spending time with family?
I have no interest in anybody's validation, I am offering up my own situation and perspective for examination, for those interested in sussing out where they think the line is and what principles underpin it.
My family (dad, stepmom, brothers - and now my kids and my husband, and my other brother's girlfriend) have had gatherings at my dad's house (where my brothers and I grew up) forever. A really hardline approach would seem to suggest that I shouldn't bring my children if my gay brother will be there (even though nobody would be doing any gay things).
I think that's a bit much.
