Everything for a reason...

I'm BIG on everything happens for a reason. This falls all the way into the rhealm of certain people are placed into other people's lives to be vehicles for them. That being said, I also have to sometimes wonder if that's absolutely WRONG... So now I'm in a predicament. I think I may be a vehicle for a friend, and I'm not sure for sure and it's sensitive...
So about two weeks ago, one of my good friends told me that one of his little boys is "soft." He believes that when this happens, it is up to the parents to push them towards more masculine things, like football as opposed to the theatre program. Long and short - he doesn't want his kid to be gay. We talked a little about our beliefs on the whole situation, and basically, in my mind, whether his kid is actually gay or not, this guy is trying to steer the kid away from the idea.
Then last week, I went out with some newer friends of mine, a gay couple... On the ride home, we were talking about when they came out... Both told me that when they told their parents, their parents told them that they had known all along. Both expressed that they wished their moms would have said something to them, it would have made their lives a lot easier when they were confused and didn't quite know what was going on...
Am I supposed to see the connection and make mention...? It's a really sensitive subject for this guy, and it's damn straight none of my business... But everything happens for a reason. I didn't bring up either conversation...
