This is Not the Letter You Write Your Gay Son

A son came out and his father disowned him

A young man originally posted the letter his father wrote him after coming out – it’s since be shared in the viral world. “I hope your telephone call was not to receive my blessing for the degrading of your lifestyle,” his dad wrote. “I have fond memories of our times together, but that is all in the past.”

Heartbreakingly, his father goes on to disown the young man, saying, “You made your choice though wrong it may be. God did not intend for this unnatural lifestyle. If you choose not to attend my funeral, my friends and family will understand.”

A word to parents, this is not the letter anyone should write to a child.
