This is such a powerful blog piece with a photo of a gay man in his underwear hugging a straight man who used to be hard core Christian Anti-Gay. But the straight man along with some other Christian friends appeared at a Gay Parade to apologize with placards for their former anti-gay rhetoric.

This is what healing is about. This is what being human and living humanistically is about. This is such a hopeful, beautiful story that it needs to go Viral… and help other Christians with the blinders on too tight to peek out of their blindness and embrace the notion that we’re all human together. And it’s really about the Love. That’s what it is about, above and beyond all else.

Apologies are so powerful. So powerful.

Such beauty in the world… if we can only see it all the time. At least most of the time.

blessings, blessings…
