Second opinions.

"After years of keeping his personal life private, the Mississippi-bred, Southern Baptist-reared [Lance] Bass, 27, is publicly revealing what he first shared with his friends, then his shocked family.... He is in a 'very stable' relationship with model-actor-Amazing Race winner Reichen Lehmkuhl, 32, and is developing an Odd Couple--inspired sitcom pilot with [Joey] Fatone in which his character will be gay.... 'I'm not ashamed ....' he explains.... 'I'm more liberated and happy than I've been my whole life. I'm just happy.'"

--As reported on, July 26

"I think homosexuality is a lifestyle, it's a choice, and that lifestyle can be changed. I think it is a transgression against God's law.... We make choices all the time ... good choices and bad choices in terms of lifestyle. Our expectation is that one's genetic makeup might make one more inclined to be an arsonist, or might make one more inclined to be a kleptomaniac. Do I think that they can be changed? Yes."

--Ohio gubernatorial candidate J. Kenneth Blackwell in The Columbus Dispatch, July 23

"The highest courts of New York and Georgia last week moved in the opposite direction of history and justice on same-sex marriage.... [T]here's still hope that California's supreme court will take a more enlightened view of the issue when it next hears a challenge to heterosexual monopoly on civil marriage.... It took the Supreme Court until 1967--1967!--to strike down odiously racist anti-miscegenation laws. Someday we'll look back on the anti--gay-marriage hysteria with the same revulsion."
