If we could all behave this emotionally intelligent our society would be much better off.

As always, Heather you have stirred up some wonderful thoughts and I am thankful for your exploration of the changing issues in our world. No matter where we find ourselves, we need always to be willing to hear one another... Thanks!

This is a wonderful post but I am leery about using language about freedom as the morally grounding language underlying these claims. Not that you are trying to do that but I think it is a rather short leap from your post to the claim that freedom is the main issue. Over the course of my life I've come to believe that human flourishing/well-being/ thriving is the issue, and that our values should center on how to support everyone's thriving - both the thriving of LGBTQ people and allies, on the one hand, and the thriving of people who, for whatever reason, find homosexuality morally repugnant. That, I believe, is our real challenge - not navigating the shoals of liberty.
