    People have always lived in fear..the default is to separate and at times even hate. its not about gay vs straight..black vs white..men vs women..its about our conditioned inability to understand that each of us is worthy of love..without loving my self ..how can i love and accept others..the pretense that the christian right, republicans, conservatives, whatever name they choose is just that and the Judge is right..like slavery, sufferage and civil rights....society will look back on this and be scratching their heads..i have great compassion for anyone who calls themselves "christians" and yet acts in a way to cause pain..bc deep down they are in pain...and are just too scared to admit it..no matter how much they hate me..I will love them
