Actually the question was.
"Does anyone have any advice for me? Anything further I could say to them? Or does it make sense that we just quietly continue our relationship with or without their permission? "
So it looks like the consensus is two fold.
1) It's up to him to decide how to handle his parents. To talk to them, to 'come out' to them, to stand up to them. Not easy but at some point I think most of us had to take a stand for our own beliefs and life against what our parents may have wanted.
2) You don't need their 'permission' for a relationship. Both of you being legal adults. If it comes down to a 'not under our roof' thing, then again boyfriend needs make a decision. Sadly, not much for the OP to do but be supportive.
