A former pastor says he's overwhelmed by the positive response to a blog post he wrote in support of his future possibly gay children.

John Pavlovitz published the post, titled If I Have Gay Children: Four Promises From A Christian Pastor/Parent, on his personal blog. He told WBTV News that more than 1.5 million people have read the post.

In the post, Pavlovitz says he often wonders whether “I'll have gay children.”

“Maybe it’s because I have many gay people in my family and circle of friends. It’s in my genes and in my tribe,” he wrote.

“Maybe it’s because, as a pastor of students, I’ve seen and heard the horror stories of gay Christian kids, from both inside and outside of the closet, trying to be part of the Church.”

“Maybe it’s because, as a Christian, I interact with so many people who find homosexuality to be the most repulsive thing imaginable, and who make that abundantly clear at every conceivable opportunity.”

The father of two vows to love his children if they turn out to be gay.

“If my kids are going to be gay, well they pretty much already are,” he wrote.

“God has already created them and wired them, and placed the seed of who they are within them. Psalm 139 says that He, 'stitched them together in their mother’s womb.' The incredibly intricate stuff that makes them uniquely them; once-in-History souls, has already been uploaded into their very cells.”

“They are today, simply a younger version of who they will be; and today they’re pretty darn great.”

The former pastor at Good Shepherd Church UMC in Charlotte, North Carolina told WBTV News that he was moved by the response his post received.

“What I was not prepared for in any way, were the literally hundreds and hundreds of people who have reached out to me personally to thank me for bringing some healing and hope to their families; for giving them a message they rarely get from Christian leaders,” Pavlovitz said.
