CNN correspondent Adrienne Broaddus spoke with a Christian family who has been trying to come to terms with one of their adult children’s gender identity. The father, an ordained minister, said although his theology has been “challenged,” he believes God wants him to respond with love.

In her introduction to the video story on CNN’s “One Thing” podcast, Broaddus cited religion as one reason why LGBTQ communities face challenges.

“But one of the main drivers of this backlash is what many have called religious conservatism. And there are some people who view LGBTQ identities and relationships as immoral and sinful,” she said. “So these groups and these interest groups are pushing for legislation that would, quite frankly, allow for discrimination against LGBTQ people on the basis of their religious beliefs.”

To give a close-up view of how some families struggle when it comes to sexuality and gender identity, the CNN reporter visited Ontay Johnson and his family in Indiana. Watch the video at CNN.
