Gleeful celebrity mom Gwyneth Paltrow took to her blog to address a common hot topic: homosexuality in the bible. Not only does she address it, but she discusses how she taught her children about homosexuality.
In her blog, she writes:
“A few months ago, in the heat of the tragic teen suicides that came about from intolerance of homosexuality, I saw a man on television who was apologizing for wishing death on gays from his facebook page,” she wrote in her latest post.
“This member of an Arkansas school board was contrite for the violence in his words, but maintained that his values pertaining to homosexuality would remain, as he felt homosexuality was condemned in the bible,” she added. “This concept, while foreign to me, is interesting, as it used to justify so much judgement and separation in our society.
“When my daughter [Apple] came home from school one day saying that a classmate had two mommies, my response was, ‘Two mommies? How lucky is she?!’ What does it actually say in the bible that will cause some people to be upset by my line of thinking?” she said before signing off with “Happy pride. Love, gp.”
