F**k you, Dad.

by duncanr

The title of this post is a quote from a guy who was disowned by his dad when he ‘came out’

A week after he told him – over the phone – he received this letter

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.

Don’t expect any further conversations with me. No communications at all. 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. Have a good birthday and good life. No present exchanges will be accepted.

Goodbye, Dad.

That was 5 years ago

When Reddit user RegBarc posted a photo of this letter his dad sent him, it provoked a lot of responses – including this one from John Kinnear in the Huffington Post – http://tinyurl.com/cp79qcm

  1. That is so terribly sad. Can’t think of anything else to say really.


    • It’s always struck me as somewhat ironic since their bible exhorts them to ‘love their enemies’ that some of the most uncharitable, unforgiving, hateful folk are fundamental christians !


  2. Yes I can . . .

  3. Damn, I just hope Nobbly doesn’t pull me up on my spelling error !


  4. Nobbly wishes to apologise to all concerned for being a bit of an arse over the past couple of days years.
