Clementi Family: ‘Sin Needs To Be Taken Out Of Homosexuality’

Last night, the Clementi family gave their first exclusive interview since Tyler’s suicide nearly two years ago. Evangelical Christians, the Clementi family now says that “sin needs to be taken out of homosexuality,” regretting some of their own discomfort when Tyler originally came out to them. Tyler’s brother James believes that Dharun Ravi’s webcam spying was “the straw that broke the camel’s back,” and the family expressed that Ravi’s lenient punishment of only 20 days in jail taught him nothing. Now, though, they are focused on The Tyler Clementi Foundation, which will help promote acceptance of LGBT teens and educate against all forms of bullying and cyberbulling. Watch the interview:
