Quote of the Day

As a survivor of the Catholic church’s ex-gay ministry, “Courage,” here in Minneapolis/St. Paul, [I can say that] this article is well-written and painstakingly correct. Pedophilia is a sexually violent act and has nothing to do with anyone’s sexual orientation. The Catholic church needs to focus on the apparently unhealthy issues among its own clergy rather than attempt to keep lesbian and gay people from pursuing loving committed relationships through marriage equality.

Good for you, Philip! I thought as much, but didn't want to go public with that assumption.
