Oh, it's not the end of the world

South Africa's legalization of gay marriage apparently signifies the end of the world.

On a somewhat related note, gay-to-straight "conversion" doesn't work. Just as Pastor Ted.

Isn't this sad? "There's a part of my life that is so repulsive and dark..."

Imagine believing that about "a part" - I would venture to say more than a part, however - of one's-self in 2006! How very 1950s!!

I hope and pray that Rev. Haggard (what a name!) can get good help in learning to love himself the way God does, and forget what some churches say.

I hope that he hasn't been in the vanguard of those fundamentalists who have been inveighing against homosexuality, because then he'll have a lot more to forgive himself for than "just" who he is.

I'm sorry, there really are people that believe a person's sexuality can be "changed", through therapy?

Is it any wonder that religious zealot's are accused of living in the past?

How is it that so many people have been left behind in terms of knowledge, tolerance, acceptance?...the list goes on.

Kudos to South Africa. I believe that many more countries will legalize gay marriage. In started in the normally liberal Holland, but it will over time spread to other countries.

This is also a big step considering many African countries still criminalize homosexuality and some even have the death penalty for it, so hopefully this will be the beginning of change in Africa on gay rights.
