My husband Mark Thompson and I have been together for more than 30 years. I’m not asking for a world of gay people. However, I earnestly yearn for a world that allows me honest identity, spares me from persecution, and blesses the emergence of hope in our everyday life. Our wedding movingly brought new friends together. Is this asking too much? Pope Francis—are you on board? You certainly seemed to be when, for example, you knelt to wash the feet of prison inmates, including Muslims. I’d like to spend a reflective evening with you. Send out for a pizza from a great place near the Vatican, open a bottle of Chianti, put our feet up, relax and share thoughts and aspirations. (Source)
Gradualness at work over a pizza and a chianti. Who are we to judge?
