Gratitude feels good, but those who made today's rights and freedoms possible have to proudly pat their own backs.

Laying the gratitude burden on the young will keep them from pushing for the subtle rights and freedoms that were too well hidden for their elders to see.

About all I can stack being gay and religious up to, Daniel, is a combination of indoctrination, cultural pressure, and ignorance of their holy books.  When I look at the vehemence with which some fundamentalists go after the LGBTQ community, I can't imagine supporting ANY branch of religion, no matter how liberal they might be.

For the life of me, I can't understand why gay people stay with their religions, when it's clear that they are picking and choosing what their gods like, even with the knowledge that their gods most like to see them reviled, tortured, and killed.  However, if their visibility and continued community in their religions, bring about more acceptance, then I suppose it's a good thing.

Kathy, I agree with you about the gift that prior generations of LGBT people have given to future generations.  Unfortunately, ageism is as present in LGBT populations, as it is in the straight world.  Not universal, but common.

Trying again on video regarding a muslim gay marriage in UK.

We can though in some Hindu - Lutheran influence at a wedding in California.

Carl, most of you know my oldest grandson is gay and married his husband a year ago. I've reminded him more than once that his generation has had it relatively easy. To be openly gay now, compared to thirty or even twenty years ago, is not the harsh path that it was then. The young ones owe a huge debt of gratitude to the prior generations.

An aside: today I saw a bumper sticker that said, "I'm gay and I vote". Pretty remarkable considering its an especially conservative place even for Texas. On the same bumper, "Come the rapture, can I have your car?" :)

I love the interview, Carl! And it is important to remember - LGBT-friendly shops here are marked with a sticker that bears the name of the last gay who was executed in this town in the 19th century. Gruesome to think of.

The Gay Muslim Marriage video, doesn't work here.

Daniel, I thank you for the Gay Muslim marriage in UK, although I could not hear a word. I tried several different things to get the audio; nothing worked. 

The beautiful garments and flowers looked splendid. I tried to read lips or imagine what they said, but could not.

Thank you, Carl, for that lovely interview between a young and elder man. The questions and answers moved me, both in their honesty with each other, and their clarity of experience.

Carl, thanks for posting.  That's really important.  I often feel like the younger generation doesn't seem to comprehend, or respect, us oldsters.
