You make an excellent point, David Montgomery, about the failure of progressive people to take a stand for justice. The same applies in secular circles as much as in religious ones. I’ve recently written about that, as well.

Yes! We will get there!

Will it happen while I’m still alive to enjoy it is the question I ask myself.

My good friend Fred Shirley, not yet quite 20 years old, will live to see the day when homophobia is as shameful as racism. I’d lay odds!
