Taking a (Wide) Stance

You can set your watch to it -- the more a person bitches about Teh Gay, the more likely it is that they're projecting their own inner struggle.

Doesn't make McClurkin -- or Obama, by association -- necessarily bad people, just ridiculous. This urge to cynically meet the "faith" niche halfway on a playing field that's rapidly changing anyway doesn't seem like the smartest thing to do. De-prioritize it, tell people to grow up and mind their own business already, and re-evaluate what's actually important to the operational ability of the country. Enough of this stupid "my invisible sky friend will immolate us all if we let the lesbians down the street get hitched" nonsense.

I look at someone like McClurkin and think--how sad it is that he can't acknowlege it to himself first and foremost. Dude, you aren't foolin' ANYONE.

The HBO documentary "Inter Sex" had some interesting research information about sex and gender identity which pretty much confirms your first paragraph.

Obama can't afford to get anywhere NEAR a topic as controversial as "recovering" homosexuality. It's a shame we can't have real dialogue in this country that includes EVERYONE, but he just can't. After all, look at what that subject has done for Larry Craig.

Best to you, keep up the good work here.
