What would my world be
if not allowed to love what I see?
Who are you to judge
what I am allowed to prejudge?
My gay friend is not allowed to love
it is emotional racism,an emotional boxing glove
I will lead my gay friend into tomorrow
where love rules,free from a yesterday of sorrow
My only judge mental religion
Is my very heart,filled with love,a shining pigeon
What is the difference of saying; "white only"
vs "heterosexuals only"? My church may end up lonely..

Think most of us grew up with a friend or knowing somebody being gay/lesbian.In these modern times we know people don`t choose their sexual orientation.A great friend from back in schooldays nearly committed suicide because his gay orientation didn`t allow him to live an acceptable life.I greet these changes we now see as yet another step in the direction of respect and tolerance.A new beginning for the civilization:-)
