RIDGEWOOD, N.J. (AP) — The parents of Tyler Clementi say they have left their longtime village church due to its views on homosexuality.
Clementi tells the New York Times (http://nyti.ms/NRpGaE) she decided
she could no longer attend Grace Church in Ridgewood because doing so
would suggest she supported its teachings against homosexuality.
Clementi also say she took strength from reading the Bible as she
reconsidered her views on the topic.
Clementi's son, Tyler, killed
himself by jumping off the George Washington Bridge in 2010. His death
came just days after his roommate had used a webcam to spy on Clementi's
romantic liaison with a man in their freshman dorm at Rutgers
The case garnered national attention and made Clementi a symbol of the perils of mistreating young gays.
