Okay, this post is to the lovely Ms. Birdie and to Martin for telling me about Father Geoff and to Father Geoff for having the moral conviction to speak his mind, possibly at the cost of his career. So many gays and lesbians live in the closet, afraid to step out into the open and speak up for themselves for fear of losing their jobs and their loved ones. For fear of being ostracized, for fear of being assaulted (yes, it does happen), for fear of not fitting in. Father Geoff spoke up as a Catholic Priest to stand up against proposition 8 and the bigotry and discrimination that it perpetuates. Hats off to you Father G. Hats off.
