I am still thinking about this one. Coming from the conservative Christian context that I do, I hear or read homophobic comments nearly every day. And just as I’m writing that, I’m thinking how depressing that is. But I am a grown adult, and – most of the time – I have a choice to engage homophobic comments or not.
But what about kids? What happens to them when they listen to adults’ homophobic comments? Does anyone doubt that they’re listening?
