First, she doesn’t communicate any concern about the sinfulness of homosexual desires nor the immorality of homosexual actions.It would be a grave mistake to start trying to ask “why? ” It would be an even greater mistake at this early stage to launch into sermon mode or to starting quoting bible verses.You need time to process this and he needs time to recover from the trauma of telling you.Rather I’d want him to see himself as creature made in God’s image, a man with many parts to his identity, a person with many gifts, a son with a diverse character and personality, one part of which, at least for the moment, is to have a homosexual desires.Eighth, I would ask him to keep coming to church, especially as homosexuality is sometimes the result of worshipping self rather than God (Romans -25).
