How not to react when your son tells you that he's gay

This family will not listen as they kick their 20-year-old son out, hit him, and disown him
How not to react when your son tells you he's gay.

Daniel is 20. Brought up in a hyper religious household, he knew the day was coming when his parents would kick him out.

On Reddit, user rythymknight posted a video on the sub-reddit GayBros of the day in question.

'You have made a choice, independent of what you've told your daddy,' Daniel's mother is heard saying.

'You can deny it all you want to but I believe in the word of God. And God creates nobody that way, it is a path that you have chosen.'

Even though Daniel tells his mother he cannot change his sexuality, and that is scientific proof, basic biology, she won't listen.

'Since you have chosen that path, we will not support you any longer. You will need to move out and find wherever you can to live and do you want to. I will not let people believe I condone what you do.'

It then escalates into an argument, with a voice yelling at Daniel that he made the choice to be gay.

'Let me tell you something you piece of shit!' Daniel is hit, and yells of 'damned queer' can be heard.

Rythymknight then said he was forced to leave.

'It's been a really traumatic experience for [my boyfriend], and I feel so terrible and angry that this happened,' he said.

'Fortunately, he's living with a friend for now. Seems like he can be there long-term until he's able to support himself.'

UPDATE: Since publishing this article, the LGBTI community has come to Daniel's aid. Read more here.

Thank you for thiis beautiful Artiicle my friend العاب تلبيس بنات 2015

First let me state than I am not Christian, but as a Buddhist, have great respect for many of the teachings attributed to Jesus.

Daniel's family's double-think, hypocrisy and logic-fail is almost laughable. They've known he was gay since he was two, but he's made a *choice*?????

This type of "Christian" is really far more Old Testament than new. Jesus never said word one about homosexuality, and His coming was supposed to have ushered in a new covenant, which superseded that of the Old Testament.

It's almost amusing the way that Bible-thumping, ultra-conservative uber capitalists twist Jesus' actions and teachings to support their own lives of vilifying anybody who doesn't act and believe they way they do, piling up money, screw the other guy, poor people are just lazy.

Jesus threw the money-changers out of the temple. Jesus said "What you do for the least of these, my people, you do for me." Jesus consorted with publicans and sinners. His most loyal follower, other than his mother, was a woman, whom the *men* who, (three hundred years after Christ's death) decided what was going in the New Testament, *claimed* was a prostitute. (Many believe Mary Magdalene was Jesus' wife, as an unmarried adult man would have been suspect in Jewish culture, and certainly would not have been permitted to teach, as Jesus was.)

If Jesus, the Prince of Peace, were to come back today, so-called Christians like Daniel's family would be the first ones to pick up stones and start hammering together the cross.

His family disgust me. It's about time people stood up and explained the history of the Bible and how it was compiled and by whom. I am absolutely sick of people using parts of it to justify their hate filled attacks on others.
If his parents and the "Word of God" believers as they say; then they endorse polygamy, rape, slavery and many other things that the Bible approves of. How revolting.
This video should be used as evidence to first have them charged with assault and then sued for the emotional, physical and psychological trauma they have put their son through.
I hope their version of hell exists so they can spend eternity there, pondering how they completely messed up the privilege of having a precious child to raise.
