There is one posting genre I'd like to see far less, and I believe we will, for it saddens me to see the video iterations of famous figures (religious and political) scoring our LGBT citizens for being who they are, and damning the rest of us (the "nation") for promoting their increasing freedom.

This is the story of Nathan and Tristan. Nathan is that self-professed former "Bible-banging homophobe" who (along with some other like-minded, reformed individuals) decided to attend a local gay pride parade to apologize for the way the church has treated homosexuals.

I've taught classes on the sexual orientation resolution process; I studied the Kinsey Report; I know the current sexual orientation scholarship. Some of my gay friends say I know more about the subject than they do. Yet I am a recovering homophobe.
