Isabel Salazar: You told Adrian that Victor, who he loves more than anyone in the whole world, is going to Hell?
Father Lawrence: I did not use those exact words. I was just trying to explain that Victor needs his family’s help to find his way back to Jesus…
Isabel Salazar: What Victor needs is for his family to love and accept him for who he is.
Father Lawrence: Isabel, you and I both know it is not that simple.
Isabel Salazar: Actually, I think it is. Today, I saw Adrian accept his brother without a second thought. I have been raised to believe a lot of ugly things, Father. Things that will probably take me the rest of my life to unlearn. But I will unlearn them. And I won’t pass them on to my kids. And no matter what you or the church say, I know in my heart that God loves my son. My beautiful, perfect, gay son. You’re gonna have to find a new music director, Father.
Father Lawrence: Isabel, I urge you not to give up on God.
Isabel Salazar: I’m not giving up on God. I’m giving up on you.
From the TV series Love, Victor – Season 2 Episode 8: ‘The Morning After’ (2×08) | Produced by Hulu
