  1. I was really happy to see DADT repealed, and I hope no one ever reverses that decision!

  2. Me voici -- Woohoo!

    Knatolee -- Agreed! This hold promise for the future.

  3. Hoorah for Anthony Woods (A Christian Response)! This young man demonstrates real integrity in his response, the kind of integrity that progressive Christians can model to raise the image of the faith in the eyes of the world. What graciousness!

  4. Nance -- It's always refreshing to hear progressive and moderate Christians standing up for justice.

  5. Wouldn't it be cool if, as a society, our morals and our ethics could keep pace with advances in technology? Thank flying spaghetti monster for these baby steps!

  6. Cognitive Dissenter -- I'm glad for them too. It's progress.
