"Why do Christians accept the Torah?"
Christians accept the Pentateuch and the rest of the Old Testament because Jesus, who is God in the flesh, accepts and teaches them (Matthew 4:4, 4:7, 4:10, 8:4; Mark 7:10, 10:2-3, 12:26; Luke 16:31, 20:37, 24:27, 24:44; John 1:45, 3:14, 5:45-46, 7:22). Jesus was born into the tribe of Judah, a legal descendent of King David of Israel, as a fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy (1 Kings 9:5; Luke 1:32).
"How can my mother enjoy Heaven, knowing that her atheist son will be tortured forever in the fires of Hell?"
Obviously, it is not important to you that you will be tormented forever in hellfire. Why should it bother your mother? Your mother's existence is not all about you, nor your father's or any of your friends' (Luke 14:26). Therefore, you should stop thinking that the universe revolves around you. If your mother is a Christian, she holds God first and foremost in her heart and soul and rejoices to see Him glorified.
"What does your religion say about homosexuality?"
The Bible makes it very clear that homosexual behavior is in direct opposition to God's commands for us (1 Corinthians 6:9; 1 Timothy 1:10; Romans 1:26-27; Genesis 19; Leviticus 18:22; Leviticus 20:13). The Bible also makes it clear that everyone is born with a predisposition toward sin (Psalm 51:5; Romans 3:10-23, 5:12).
