Good news (for a change...)

2 items, so please read all the way to the bottom


1. This came through in the news just a few hours ago, as Pope Francis is leaving Ireland


"During the inflight news conference, Pope Francis also was asked about Ireland's legalization of gay marriage and what advice he would give the parent of a gay child.


"What would I say to a parent whose son or daughter had that tendency? I would say first, pray. Don't condemn. Dialogue, understand, make room for that son or daughter, make room so he can express himself," the pope said. "I would never say silence is a remedy," he said. And "to ignore one's son or daughter who has a homosexual tendency is a failure of fatherhood or motherhood."


2. The ACLU fights hard for all civil rights, but this ruling on the dignity due to transgender individuals is heartwarming for the LGBTQ+ community and their allies.
