With all of the “World’s #1 Grandpa” mugs out there, it’s been hard to weed out #1 from #456,326. Fortunately, one man just made his status as the best of them very clear.

A young man by the name of Chad recently submitted a letter, written by the aforementioned grandfather, to FCKH8.com. In this letter we find out that Chad’s mother, Christine, has kicked him out of the house after he made clear his non-heterosexuality.  


Grandpa stepped in and gave Christine, his daughter, a piece of his mind: “[Chad] was born [gay] and didn’t choose it [...] you however, have made a choice of being hurtful, narrow-minded and backward."

Though it may be a bit out of touch at times: “I now have a fabulous (as the gay put it) grandson to raise...” this man's letter was beautiful and honest proof that the strongest support can come from the most unlikely of sources! Now if only I could hang out and play Bocce with this guy...

Read the full letter below and be prepared to do a mini-fist pump:
