Father Allegedly Sets His HIV-Positive Gay Son on Fire in Peru

A father in Peru allegedly poured gasoline on his 22-year-old son and set him on fire, The Huffington Post reports. According to a Peruvian newspaper, Hitler Baneo Núñez, 49, tried to burn his son alive because he is gay and has HIV. The son survived, but has burns on his face, arms and parts of his legs. The newspaper claims the father committed the act after becoming tired of jokes from neighbors about his son’s sexuality.

This father should walk in his sons shoes and support and love his son.

Will if is father was a real man ' he (the father) should stick up for him(the son) not do the same as strange would do . I live by this person that call me out said I'm aids boy but my family stick up for me . So this guy as to be a man not a cause of it. My kids are everything I would no choose to hurt them . Hope the son get better and know we feel for him.

This article is disturbing in so many levels. Starting with the 2nd paragraph with the father's name - Hitler . Are you kidding? Than, without supporting the arguments for more than a few no news paragraphs, it jumps to another story, perhaps as revolting. I wonder what is the point, besides causing noise?
