the son should write i love you letters to his dad every single year on his dads birthday. and always include a pic of him with his boyfriend hugging it out.

If there is indeed a Christian god there there's got to be a lot of disappointed "Christians" at ye old pearly gates who find out their travel plans have been booked differently then they thought.

It takes a lot of courage to take that firm of a stand against homosexuality nowadays. Though I wouldn't disown my son if he were gay, I'd distance myself from his lifestyle, but still love him and be there if he needed me.

The dad who wrote that letter is anything but courageous. He's a coward.

It certainly takes something to think a fairy tale is more important than your own son, but I wouldn't call it courage.

Nah, just a prick of a father.

Edit: Confirmation that it's real?

Why is this father wrong in what he did? It was his, the father's, choice and I am assuming it was not easy for him.

Do you think being gay is a valid and acceptable reason for a parent to disown their child(ren)?

Can't assume that he's not just a prick. The wife, the counselor, regularly pisses me off with stories of what parents do/have done to their children.

Very sad. I'm about to have a son myself, and I can honestly say I'd be exactly as proud of him whether he's gay or straight. I can only hope that his orientation won't be ridiculed and chastised in school as we become more accepting and civilized as a country.

The father chose his belief system over his son. He's a despicable person and I won't shed a tear for him or any other parent who would disown their children because of their children's sexual orientation.

Doesn't sound very Christian to me.

The father chose to make it difficult for himself, let him deal with the consequences.

And he doesn't have the right to speak for the other family members or friends in his letter; it's quite possible they don't share his feelings (or faith).

Blah blah - one more useless post to add to the thousands of useless post you've made.
Just trying to put things into perspective. Sorry that you don't appreciate my posts. Perhaps you should consider putting me on ignore.

I knew there would be a couple of asshole who'd defend this guy and it doesn't surprise me in the slightest that a777troll is one of them.
