Only a bad father would make a son feel that it was ok to be discriminated against.

I applaud the son. The son knows his chosen lifestyle is wrong. He knows he's a filthy deviant pervert and accepts and owns that fact.

Bingo!

If someone wants to turn gay then turn gay, but at least own that perversion, own that deviance. Don't try to play people that you're some normal decent person. And marriage, kids? Come on!

The gay son was a president of the local Log Cabin Republicans. That says it all.

He should switch before they throw him out, the Log Cabin Republicans do support equal marriage, now GOProud supports his second class citizenship.

The article did say he "was" involved with the Log Cabin group. If he's no longer associated with them the fact the group does support marriage equality should be a huge clue-by-four to him that perhaps he's not exactly working in his own best interests.

R1 how long have you been the hateful, bigoted asstroll on here? What 5 years? In all that time, you must have read from me and others (with factual evidence) that for most, being gay is not a choice. Another weird concept that's hard for you to grasp, but what makes a person normal and decent is not based of what they f(_)ck. It's based on compassion for others and following through with your word, none of the qualities you display. I don't really give a sh*t what YOUR concept of marriage is or what YOU consider a family. Either of which, judging by your cowardly character, it's safe to assume you've failed at miserably. So in other words, STFU! AND You're the most perverted POS on here!

"The LGBT community has been "incredibly intolerant..."

Ya think?

And the intolerance of the usual suspects in here substantiates that. It's simple. If you don't follow the party line in here, they just call you a bigot and make all sorts of snarky and hateful comments. And then they wonder why not everybody is on their side.

The usual suspects will now heap on the usual, and aforementioned stupid and dishonest comments in an vain attempt to appear clever and significant. Come on Sheeple. It's time (again) for you to look stupid.

How does a person DO that? And you believe that some 13 yr old kid can completely extinguish all attraction to the opposite gender, and completely replace it with only attraction to the same gender, even if they have never even MET a gay person?

At least apply common sense.

You must not have kids.

Mine don't have this magical ability. Heck, I still have to remind my 13 yr old to pick up his clothes and brush his teeth before school. And HE can turn off all attraction to the opposite gender, for life?

Puberty is tough enough for kids. Don't pretend they have abilities that even YOU don't have.

Geesh.

Only a disrespectful son or daughter would bring shame upon their own father or mother over degrading, humiliating, life reducing, unhealthy, deviant, and morally unsound behavior. His son came to his FATHERS defense and THAT is the greatest of all honors. Sadly most gays just don't understand how out of control they really have gone.

SS parenting? Good one satan, good one.
