I am proud today to be a New Yorker, and only wish that the legislators of Virginia could have the moral integrity of those Republicans of New York who voted with their hearts instead of their agendas.
But I think there's hope. Look at this comment from "Ralph" in today's New York Times:
To be honest, I worried about whether it was really healthy for a child to be brought up by two parents of the same sex. And then I just read the comments of many of the readers of Fox News, remarks filled with hatred and bigotry and ignorance. What kind of environment will their kids have???? Our kids are much better brought up by people with compassion than people with hate.....what their genders are seems comparatively inconsequential.
Thank you, Ralph. Thank you to all the Ralphs out there who sat down, thought about it and realized the truth.
Here's hoping for more compassion, less hate, and a better day for us all.
