    This kid is so brilliant and shows promise of so much more. And so it goes. If this young man is part of our family--I don't know if it's true, but let's suppose it is--it again reinforces the unlimited creative capabilities we all have. In most cases untapped capabilities. Capabilities buried under layers of prejudices and stigma. I tell you, brothers, with the end of DOMA, these layers of misguided hate are beginning to lift, and we are at the dawn of a new age. We are more, much more than "just" attracted to our own sex, and realizing that transcends us to a new world of endeavor and accomplishment.

    I don't know if that's true...
    But, I had a cousin that swore all great men throughout history have been gay. She is a straight female.
