A heartbreaking letter that was allegedly written by an unsupportive father to his gay son five years ago has now gone viral in the blogosphere.
The letter was written in response to a phone call made by a gay son to his father.
It started out, “James: This is a difficult but necessary letter to write. I hope your telephone call was not to receive my blessing for the degrading of your lifestyle. I have fond memories of our times together, but that is all in the past.”
The homophobic father then went on to tell his son: “Don’t expect any further conversations with me….I will not come to visit, nor do I want you in my house.”
“You’ve 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.”
The father ended his letter by saying “Have a good birthday and good life. No present exchanges will be accepted. Goodbye, Dad.”
In all fairness to this father the letter was written five years ago, he could have had a change of heart, I pray that he did!
