'I'm sixty-eight years old, and now I can say without a shadow of a doubt, "I'm gay. I'm a Christian. And God loves me without reservation." But for all those lonely, unhappy decades, I was a victim of misinformation that came into my life through ignorance and prejudice that began in the church.'
-- Rev. Dr. Mel White, author and filmmaker
