Okay, then

It's not everything we could hope for, but if Zach's story at least starts some kind of public dialogue, well, then, we're making progress.

The incurable bigots are who they are, and we know who they are, but we also know they're wrong.

I firmly believe that most people, if told the truth, would not want to persecute or demonize the GLBT population in this country.

I've tried hard not to demonize Zach's parents. I know they're not monsters. They're spending a tidy chunk of change doing what they think is best. They've been lied to and misinformed and that's not something most people get over easily.

I don't know how this will turn out for Zach. All I can do is wish the best for him.

(And for Eric. Let's not forget about him and who-knows how many other children suffering the same abuse.)

Update: Looks like CNN is taking on the story seriously.
