    "Southworth himself said, "Exposing this truth of Jonathan’s sexual orientation is not an easy decision for me. I take no pleasure in doing this. As I type this my stomach is turning because I know of the backlash he will receive. I have thought about what all of this will mean for him and for me. I base my reasoning in the importance of living an authentic and honest life. We must have radical honesty in the character, intentions and identities of our leaders.”"

    I dont agree with his reason, that I have highlighted in red, for a private person.

    But I heartily agree with his reason, that I have highlighted in blue, for someone who is publically espousing one view, but privately living another, needs to be outed.

    Its puzzling, to me, that level of self loathing. I hope he is able to love and celebrate himself as he is and reconcile his faith and sexuality.
