Stop me if you've heard this one before: A young, gay man comes of age in the Deep South, where he is the son of a pastor. If you're expecting this story to end in tears, you may be right - but they may be tears of joy. Michael Chisum's ode to the love of two fathers was a message that we very much needed to hear in this time of bigotry paraded as faith.
"God is love; whoever abides in love abides in God, and God in him."
-1 John 4:16
