It Gets Better. (Take 2)

Lovely photograph, disastrous mitre.
A couple of years ago, in the spring of 2011, I posted a short video of the Rt Rev'd Gene Robinson (then Bishop of New Hampshire, USA) filmed in support of the It Gets Better project. Later on in the same spring I felt under pressure to remove the video from AAB. I believed then, as I still believe now, that that was the wrong move for this blog. 

I do appreciate that a large section of the Anglican Church still feels uneasy with this issue - as it does with the ordination of women and a bunch of other things - however, I do not think that giving in is the right choice at all. So here is the video again, and another one besides.

Needles to say, I do not necessarily share exactly the same views as Bp Gene or the Rev'd Susan Russell on other matters, but their messages are incredibly important for our Church today.
