I consider being out of the closet a moral issue, and it's refreshing to see it framed similarly by someone else.
I just ran across this quote by Rachel Maddow, who now has her own show on MSNBC.
"I think that there is a moral imperative to be out, and I think that if you’re not out, you have to come to an ethical understanding with yourself why you are not. And it shouldn’t be something that is excused lightly. I don’t think that people should be forced out of the closet, but I think that every gay person, sort of, ought to push themselves in that regard. Because it’s not just you. It’s for the community and it’s for the country."Amen!
This is from the After Ellen article, "Rachel Maddow, Anchor Woman."
Thanks, Rachel, for being of like mind.
