These Parents Rejected Their Gay Son On TV And People Are Furious
"What's more important, your child or your outdated pathetic belief?"
Last night's episode of Bride and Prejudice saw Grant's fiancé, Chris, ask his parents if they would come to his wedding.
The heartbreaking exchange did not go well with his religious mother, Yvonne, and conservative father, Geoff, who claimed that Chris had to live with his choices.
Yvonne explained that she understood that Chris would probably be disappointed and hurt, but also that if he was "honest" he would've expected it. Chris then called out Yvonne for sacrificing their relationship for her beliefs, and she explained that she was entitled to have them.
Chris asked if his parents would at least meet Grant and they told him that the only contact they wanted with their son is with just him. He replied, "Well, just me is all of me. Not just part of me, so you can choose all of me or none of me". To which Yvonne responded, "Well, if that's the way it's gotta be, then that's the way it's gotta be."
Chris' dad stayed fairly quiet during the whole conversation. Except at the end where he said his son had to live with his decisions, and that this wasn't the outcome he wanted to see after "doing his job" of bringing Chris to adulthood.
