Thank Westboro Baptist Church and the Phelps's for making homophobia gross and stupid!
Some good news from the City of Chicago:
Chicago Public Schools plans to have a new sex education policy in place by 2016, the district announced Sunday. For the first time, the district will address sexual orientation and gender identity, as well as bullying.

That's a nice story, Daniel. I'm sure that made your day.
Sentient, I am happy to learn of your positive experience.
Just something I can't get out of my mind. I can't say I'm not out at work - I've talked about my partner to most of the coworkers who are closest to me, and my senior manager, and HR knows for sure. I have speculated that it's at least a factor, if not THE factor, for why I was harassed into leaving a prior office location, where my performance by all measures was among the best but the harassment was intolerable. So most of the time I keep to myself, and never speak explicitly, at all, about being gay. It's not hidden at all, but I just keep quiet.
Yesterday the office staff were discussing their husbands' lack of giving them chocolates or flowers for valentines day. "My hubby never gives me flowers" . In my role, I don't engage in the banter and gossip. I'm just nice to everyone. As I walked past, one of them said, "So, did your hubby give YOU flowers for valentines day?" Blew me away. I had never spoken to her about my hubby.
The answer was, "No, he's in China for Chinese New Year with his family" and she say "Awe, you poor man! You deserve better"
Made me feel really good. Totally accepting. Nice feeling.
I still have some PTSD about an earlier life of abuse and harassment and discrimination. But yesterday felt really good.
I am sure the "god made a gay man" video is a parody of the awful Paul Harvey dodge commercial. I could also comment on the issue of inclusiveness - maybe it will start an internet meme for "god made a ..... " LGBTI person. Or even "Evolution made a....."
The pro-gay message of your video is great, Sentient Biped, but the drumbeat of theism -yuck!
