I can’t imagine abandoning your own child like that.

Most of my family has abandoned my sister, condemning her for being a lesbian. (They are from “mainline” Protestant churches.) The exceptions are my mother and me.

They have also abandoned me over my lack of religious faith (excepting my mother and sister and one cousin).

The issue is when someone exists around you, who’s very existence challenges your deeply-held ideas, it is much easier to reject the person rather than the idea.

Get rid of the person, and you can hold on to your position (LGBT are an affront to God, atheists cannot be happy without God, &c).

In the case of religious belief, YouTuber DarkMatter2525 made a video about this, but it really applies to anyone who does not fit into your particular view about a group.
