For those who have no idea who Mary Griffith is, you need to watch Prayers for Bobby. I wrote a blog on it several years ago. It's about a very religious mother, played by Sigourney Weaver, who's life drastically turns around after her gay son commits suicide. It can literally change your thoughts on gay people and God, for the better.

Quoted: Mary Griffith on Religion and Her Son
“If no one had ever challenged religious authority, there’d be no democracy, no public schools, women’s rights, improvements to science and medicine, evolution of slavery and no laws against child abuse or spousal abuse. I was afraid to challenge my religious beliefs because that was the basis of creation—mine anyway. I was afraid to question the Bible or anything in it, and when I did, that’s when I became involved with PFLAG and realized that my son was a perfectly normal human being and there was nothing for God to heal because Bobby was perfect just the way he was.” - Mary Griffith on religion and her son.
