“What's unnatural is homophobia. Homo sapiens is the only species in all of nature that responds with hate to homosexuality.”
Alex Sanchez, The God Box

“the church should just stay out of people's pants.”

“The pressures on gay teens can be overwhelming--to keep secrets, tell lies, deny who you are, and try to be who you're not. Remember: you are special and worth being cared about, loved, and accepted just as you are. Never, ever let anyone convince you otherwise.”
Alex Sanchez
