I’m sorry. I’m sorry the world is changing. I’m sorry all gay Americans have been granted the Constitutional right to have as much love in their lives as straight people enjoy. I’m sorry the Christian church has become more loving (and more biblical). I’m sorry the Republican party has for so long so utterly disgraced itself that for the third straight presidential election it’s incapable of fielding a candidate with a snowball’s chance in hell. I’m sorry that a black man turned out to be one of the most awesome presidents in our country’s history.
But mostly I’m sorry that you cannot see how all of this is as good for you personally as it is for America generally. Remember, please, the words of another great American president: You have nothing to fear but fear itself.
