Bride and Prejudice: Homophobic Christian father shocks viewers

Viewers have been left shocked and outraged by a conservative Christian father’s rejection of his lesbian daughter on last night’s episode of controversial reality TV series Bride and Prejudice.

The Channel 7 series’ season premiere on Monday night introduced the show’s first three couples, including newly-engaged lesbian couple Dylan and Ange.

Ange’s sit-down with her father John to talk to him about her engagement with Dylan provided the episode’s most heartbreaking scenes.

After her mother died from breast cancer when Ange was just six, John raised Ange and her two brothers on his own.

“He loves me but he just doesn’t agree with the fact that I’m gay,” Ange explains.

“I don’t want anyone to think he is a bad dad just because he has these beliefs.”

The deeply religious John is quick to blame her “confusion” about her sexuality on how she was raised.

“Had your mother been there she would have taught you something different,” John said.

“Because there’s a lady’s touch missing from our household.”

Ange answers in shock, “I am going to sit down and tell you right now if I could be attracted to males I would be.

“I don’t want to make life harder for myself.

“I didn’t just wake up one day and say, ‘You know what? This seems hard, I’m going to do it.’ I didn’t do that.”

But John refuses to budge, comparing same-sex attraction to incest and claiming his daughter will never know “true happiness” unless she has children in a heterosexual relationship.

“What if I don’t want kids at all?” Ange responds.

“Well that’s a good thing because you won’t f–k their heads up,” John answers.

Ange is left shocked and stunned by her father’s cruel comments.

“Wow, I can’t believe you just said that,” she said.

“I can’t believe those words just came out of your mouth, to my face.”

Bride and Prejudice viewers took to Twitter to weigh in on Ange and John’s interaction.

“When you want to destroy your child’s happiness, there’s nothing Christian about you,” one person tweeted.

“Oh Ange, you are too good and too strong for this shit,” another wrote.
