What do you say to a parent that tells you she is worried you wont go to heaven?
My mom is a wonderful person but she is really religious and does not like that I am gay. When I came out to her two years ago she told me she loved me and that she hopes that I got over it. The other day we were watching tv and and I made a comment that a guy on some show was cute she started tearing up and told me she was afraid I was not going to heaven. I did not say anything. I know that she loves me but I don't think she will ever accept my being gay.

1. Ask Her What Kind of God Makes Someone Gay and Then Sends Them to Hell For It.
Or, you could simply tell her that you hope she "gets over" her religious fantasies.
