Is it child abuse if you are a lesbian and your parents won't let you be who you want and try to force their religious beliefs on you?

No, it's a parent wishing the best for their child, and hoping that it's just a "phase". While they will probably not get what they want (hetero child), what they're trying to accomplish certainly isn't child abuse, even though there will be plenty who would want to claim otherwise. Is it child abuse to send your child to school in hopes that they won't turn out to be an ignorant dependant of the welfare system? After all, school is tough and not all kids enjoy it. Is it child abuse to send your child to a shrink for depression or other mental problems? After all, psychotherapy can be emotionally painful and makes people face issues that they don't necessarily want to address. Everyone wants to claim that what happened to them was "child abuse". If we're all victims of child abuse, then at some point we have to acknowledge that it's a normal condition and there isn't anything we can do about it, and it minimizes REAL child abuse. Get over it, your parents just want the best for you even though you obviously don't agree.

In Illinois if a Father signed his parental rights over but now as the child is older he wants to see her again regularly. Does he have any rights at this point?

I think that the father does to a certain extent,nothing legal but at his house he makes all of the rules. because i know someone with this same issue, i think that if the child wants to see his or her father they should be allowed to when ever they want. And i think that when the child is with their father the father should make the rules for that house and even though he might not have any rights i say that it's his house so it should be his rules no matter if he has rights or not. And that if the child wants to do something, like go to town and hang out with some friends then they should be able to, the legal parents should not have to be contacted..the only reason why the legal parents should be contacted is if the child is asking for something that they normally don't ever get to do not even while with the legal parents. The father would still not have any legal rights but when the child goes to visit him it would be like going to a friends house and the legal parents say that whatever you do is up to the friends parents...its no different except that the legal parents might get scarred that the child might want to move out of their house and move back in with their dad.

Can a 16-year-old move where he wants if he's kicked out by both parents?

No. Parents cannot "kick" a minor child out of the house without making arrangements for the minor to have a suitable and safe living environment. The abandonment of a minor by his or her parents does not confer emancipation rights upon the underage person. The minor should enlist the aid of another adult to assist them in contacting the state's division of child protective services, or call the National Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline, toll free at 1-800-422-4453 or 1-800-252-2873.
