A father’s letter to his gay son goes viral, sparks discussion

Hate comes in many forms and many places…including ones own family

A lot of unfair and unpleasant things have occurred in the name of religion. And with the recent backlash against Chick-Fil-A and their company chairman Dan Cathy, lines have been drawn in the sand, and definitive sides have been taken. But the words of a stranger made in the name of Christianity pales in comparison to those same words being made by a member of one’s own family; especially a parent.

Follow this link to read a story of a letter received 5 years ago from the father of a young man named “James,” in response to his letter coming out to his parent. Then ask yourself the question; is this letter really the Christian thing to do?
