A shockingly cruel letter sent from a father to his just-out gay son has gone viral, beginning with a Facebook post from LGBT ally wrestler Hudson Taylor. It has now spread to numerous LGBT sites including HuffPo's Gay Voices, Towleroad, Pink News, The New Civil Rights Movement, Truth Wins Out. It is, as Truth Wins Out's John M. Becker says, "a stark reminder of why the fight for LGBT equality and against religious extremism is so critical."
