And who here should be ashamed of their inhumanity and lack of charity?
Will Phillips, an elementary school student in Arkansas, refused to recite the Pledge of allegiance in school because of discrimination against gay people. Says Will: “I really don’t feel that there’s currently liberty and justice for all.” He’s 10 years old. See here.

The Catholic Archdiocese of Washington said Wednesday that it will be unable to continue the social service programs it runs for the District if the city doesn’t change a proposed same-sex marriage law, a threat that could affect tens of thousands of people the church helps with adoption, homelessness and health care.
And I think I had better retract my usage yesterday of the quote about youth being wasted on the young – in this case it’s probably the old fogies who waste their time on earth with their prejudices, their lack of both logic and science and their nasty blackmailing tactics.
Will Phillips, on the other hand, will go far.
