The pro-LGBT advocacy group FCKH8 released a letter from an irate father to his daughter on Wednesday in which the father and grandfather disowned his daughter for kicking her son Chad out of the house. According to Yahoo News, the boy had just told his mother that he is gay.
“Dear Christine,” he wrote. “I’m disappointed in you as a daughter. You’re correct that we have a ‘shame in the family,’ but mistaken about what it is. Kicking Chad out of your home simply because he told you he was gay is the real ‘abomination’ here.”
The man announced his intention to take Chad in and care for him since his mother has rejected him on the basis of his orientation.
“He was born this way and didn’t choose it more than he being left-handed,” he wrote. “You, however, have made a choice of being hurtful, narrow-minded and backward. So while we are in the business of disowning children, I think I’ll take this moment to say goodbye to you. I now have a fabulous (as the gay [sic] put it) grandson to raise…”
“If you find your heart, give us a call,” he concluded.
