From the mouths of babes

G caught a little bit of Desperate Housewives (Season 1) last night, esp. the scene where Bree's son is talking to the priest about his being gay. Bree (and her church) are of the opinion that being gay is a sin, and that Andrew will not go to heaven.

So G asked me what was going on. I explained that some churches think men who are gay won't go to heaven.

G says slowly, "How could loving someone be a bad thing?"

You said it, babe.

(Then he went on to say that he thinks he's gay, with a tiny grin, since he is so very fond of his friend William. I said maybe, but he has plenty of time to figure that out.)
