The founding fathers refered to "Natures Law" when refering to a higher power when penning the originating documents. Also, proof of the Bible being used as a textbook in early classrooms or it didn't happen. Note: pulling "facts" from a uber Christian bullshit site doesn't coun't.
I repeat, read a book called "one nation under god". It is filled with quotes from the founding fathers and you will find many, many references to God in them. I haven't read the book in quite a while so I don't remember if there is reference to Jesus. But God, yes. I'll have to dig it out.

Chad,
I would want to meet the parents and I guess I would be cautious. I would not even be beyond bringing your concerns up to the couple. After all, it's your son, who cares if you offend them?

I have a neice who is gay. She has a daughter from a previous marriage. I can't really say I have observed anything unusaual. Other than her girlfriend knows more sports stats than most guys I know.
