Robbie Pierce, the husband of Advocate Editorial Director Neal Broverman, has the internet cracking up with his epic response to a child repeating homophobia he heard at home.

“A random unattended 7yo at the park told me and my son that gay people are the devil and are going to hell,” Pierce wrote. “My son scoffed, but the boy said it was true because God said so.”

“I told him parents made up God to make their kids do what they want. His eyes got so big.”

In a later tweet, Pierce justified his response succinctly: “I’m sorry but if you teach your kids to hate I’m going to teach them to disobey you.”

People chimed in with support for Pierce.

Earlier this year, Pierce and Broverman and their children were accosted on an Amtrak train by a man who called the gay dads “pedophiles” who “stole” their children.

“Family? That’s not a family! You’re both rapists. You steal Black and Asian kids,” the man yelled at the family. “You guys aren’t natural. Homosexuals are an abomination.”
