He did a wonderful job.  Probably 1/5 of the children that attend my church are from same sex parented homes.  Their families are no different than any other family that attends.  I wish people realized that the most important thing is that a family is about love not the sex of the parents.

Yeah, this is going around FB--even from people I wouldn't have expected to post it.  I've been seeing more of that--straight friends posting things about gay bullying, marriage rights, etc.  I've been surprised.  Thanks for posting here, so others could see.

What a strong, confident and well spoken young man!

IMO his mums should be role models for parents :-)
