This line is important.

My daughter came out of the closet a couple of years ago and I thought I was just going to agonize about that.  Nothing’s different.  She’s still a fabulous human being and she’s met someone she loves very much.  And some day, by god, I want to throw a wedding for that kid.

This is why we come out as LGBT, as atheist, or as any minority.  The negative myths get stripped away when you realize the evil that frightens you so much surrounds you in your daughter, your friends, your parents, etc.

That’s when you realize that gays and atheists aren’t evil.  They’re people.  And they’re good people.
