Un-friended over gay wedding post, straight man gains perspective

"My younger brother is gay,” David Stevens says in a video posted on his blog. “Gay as laughter. Gay as the day is long. One of the finest moments in my life, and one of the greatest compliments anyone has ever paid me, was the day he felt safe to come out to me. He’s in his mid-30s now, but he’ll always be my little brother. And man, I love that kid. He’s brilliant, he’s funny, and he’s kind. And he just married a phenomenal man."

When David posted photos of his brother and his brother’s husband on their wedding day, he received this message from a “friend":

"Hey David, I am removing you from my friends list. Sorry man, that latest post is way over the top. Homosexuals joining in holy matrimony? I don’t think so. The holy bible speaks out against homosexuality and speaks highly of holy matrimony between a man and a woman. It’s nothing more than a slap in the face to those who choose God’s word for homosexuals to join in a holy marriage. I’m only defriending you so I don’t have to look at your anti-God stuff anymore — nothing personal."

Check out David’s full response in the below video. Best brother ever?
