Hopefully your boss is reasonable enough to understand that just because your father is homophobic, that doesn’t mean you are yourself. But knowing stories about bosses on this app, I have a feeling that’s he probably isn’t.

Probably shouldn't have invited dad to join the dinner if he was so homophobic, particularly if you're inviting someone that important over. Though I am curious how that topic comes up in conversation.

You would be surprised. My father was antisemitic, homophobic, racist, and misogynist. People like that throw various pejoratives around very casually, in any kind of conversation. And then you kinda do a double take and "WHAT did you just say?"

Shocking news report - having an opinion does not mean you’re free of consequences. This isn’t some public forum where people are free to spout whatever nonsense they like because of freedom of speech. This is a private home that the boss was invited into, where I don’t think boycotting or counterprotesting is quite so effective.

The man basically sat there and told the boss that his daughter, his child, his loved one, deserves an eternity of suffering over who she sleeps with, but yeah, the boss is a twat for taking offense.

Nice priorities.

I highly doubt they even knew the daughter was gay. sounds like he was just generally ranting which isn't a personal thing so there was no reason for the boss to get violent no one was personally bashing him you have to be a special kind of snowflake to take second-hand offense. If you don't like what you're hearing you speak about it and or leave you don't just go around breaking noses.

The OP’s father said this in front of a guest I’m assuming he has never met before, and not only that, a guest that he [the father] didn’t invite over himself. He had no business being an asshole.

I have to side with K4yj4y here. Yes, OP's father is a tactless fuckhead. However, you only ever resort to violence in defence (be it of yourself or some else). You never hit someone just because you don't like what they said. It doesn't matter how offended you are, it does not give you the right to punch someone in the face.

I can't believe I have to explain this. Christ, you people are a bunch of thugs.

You don't really know your own Constitution, do you?

The 1st amendment simply states, among other things, that the Congress cannot pass laws to abridge the freedom of speech or of the press.

It doesn't mean you can say whatever you want without facing any consequences whatsoever. If that were the case, people would not get sued for slander or defamation.

That being said, I don't approve of the boss's reaction. He could have just stormed off, violence doesn't solve anything.

The first amendment applies to the government, not private conversations.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

No way to know the boss was liberal. You talk negatively about something that relates to a man's daughter you can expect a reaction no matter what their views are.

So many questions.....why the hell do you have your Boss at your Home to "seal the deal on a promotion"?
That's something you do outside on neutral grounds in a restaurant or something.
Unless you and your boss are good friends (which i doubt or otherwise you'd have known of problems possibly arising between your dad and your boss) you should just striktly separate your work and private life.
