    faster than I dared hope.

    I think the interwebs are part of the reason.  A pastor can belch brimstone and fire about lesbians and gay men from the pulpit on Sunday.  He can screech and snort and pound the podum.  He can condemn them to eternal hellfire.

    But by that evening, any number of young people struggling with their sexual identity can log on at their bedroom computer station and discover quite literally thousands of websites and references which affirm LGBTQ people, which accord them the full dignity of their life and times, and which offer historical perspective and current analysis and unswerving encouragement.

    Then, come Monday morning, that bus ride into high school is a hell of an improved one.
