Watch these inspiring strangers defend a same-sex couple

Faith in humanity restored!

ABC's hit show, "What Would You Do?" puts the general public in morality questioning situations, to see how they react when no one is watching (except for millions of T.V. viewers, of course).

In a recent episode, the team headed to a Plainfield, New Jersey diner, to see how restaurant-goers would react when a homophobic woman started berating a same-sex couple.

In the first scenario staged by ABC, this complete stranger gets visibly upset for the same-sex couple and immediately comes to their defense. He calls out the homophobic woman and does everything in his power to make the couple feel better.

Watch the amazing video here:

ABC's "What Would You Do?" really shows what it means to be an active bystander and stand up for your fellow stranger...regardless of whether anyone is watching.

A recent study showed that "children raised by same-sex couples were both happier and healthier" than those raised in traditional homes. Watch the video below to find out more:
