Extremely upsetting and sad. This just reinforces the bigotry toward same-sex couples by families brainwashed by religion and community. You can feel the hate expressed toward their child/grandchild. She knew since he was three that he was gay, and somehow it is his "choice" to be this way. What three year old understands this? Not one. They believe he's being disrespectful and rebellious. How can he "want" to be gay? Because, he really isn't in their twisted beliefs, this is his choice in their minds. Having religious leaders telling their congregations that God cannot tolerate gays that they are the enemy, it dehumanizes gay people and you can feel it in this video. Why would someone "want" to be of same-sex orientation? Coinciding the probable consequences, it's not very appealing. But these leaders preach this is a choice and a wrong, sinful one. Yet why would a loving God impress upon someone to feel love for another but not let it be expressed? There is also fear involved. The tone in this video expresses fear, fear that a community will look down upon the family if they accept this abomination. So hate and rage explode. This family will not be exposed as being tolerate or loving of their son, no matter the consequences to the family unit. Because if they do it will stain their standing in the community. This is something that will not be accepted. How can the family? They've been told all along that this can be fixed. Pray it away. Or in this video, throw him away.

If anyone is interested in a very good Nexus 5 review please check out this one from Tom's Hardware. It is the best one I have read hands down. It looks at 13 different aspects of the phone and Android and does a nice job of critiquing each. If other "journalists" did this style of review in the smart phone arena I would be able to use that word without parentheses. Here is the link: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/google-nexus-5-smartphone,3720.html

I call BS on the speaker issue. It's called a volume rocker, it's located on the left side of the phone. You then push up and the volume increases. There are 3 N5's in my family and ALL the speakers perform with considerable loudness. No way any need to be held up to the ear when on loud speaker.

I am really enjoying my new look for my Nexus 5. This is with a blue carbon fiber iCarbons skin ( iCarbons.com :$25 delivered for back/front/sides) and a yellow bumper case from Poetic (available on Amazon $14.95 delivered).

Hello everyone, I just want to let you know I put up my quick review of the Poetic Bumper Case for the Nexus 5. I like it, plus Poetic backs up their products. If you case is faulty or breaks due to use they replace it, no questions asked. I got my Nexus 4 bumper replaced two times due to it coming apart. This one for the N5 seems better constructed than the N4 bumper case.
A quick review for the Poetic Bumper Case for the Nexus 5.Also, their customer service is INCREDIBLE!! http://www.amazon.com/Poetic-Borderline-Bumper-Manufac...

New home screen. I allowed widget overlay so I could make the clock, Yahoo weather, and battery widget reborn all go together. I made the colors all the same in the 3 widgets.

Check out my review of the Tudia WAV Hybrid Bumper Case for the Nexus 5. I use this case daily while I work. Its lightweight and sturdy. Plus it has a slim profile for a rugged case. In my opinion its nicer, better looking, than the iBlasson or Maxboost holster cases. However I still like those cases too.
A very nice rugged and light case for the Nexus 5, available at Amazon, http://www.amazon.com/TUDIA-WAV-HYBRID-Material-Protective-Bumper/dp/B00G1PU6QQ. I us...

My new home screen using Nova Launcher Prime. It's great, I still have Google Now as a half page widget with my Google Keep on the bottom. This way I can quickly access my important widgets/apps with one slide left and right.
