"I think in 20 years people will look back on all of the controversy and laugh. Your children and your children’s children will go, “What the hell were they thinking?” It’ll be a non-issue – it’ll be such and accepted part of life that it’ll be like the expectation that the sun comes up in the morning."

"I had to fight a lot of that growing up, and I had my share of confrontations and assaults. I’ve seen it all, and now I’m in my mid 40s. I’m a little bit more laid-back and choose to take a more passive approach, like voting or being the person that I want to be."

As Interviewed by Bridget Lewis
"People don’t feel like they’re hating when they say you shouldn’t be gay. I know they feel like they’re trying to be concerned for the person’s soul. And they use the Bible [to prove this], which has a lot of anti-gay stuff, but there are words that they translate as homosexual that shouldn’t be translated that way... That is the problem with a lot of the passages in the Bible about homosexuality, that they use words and concepts that don’t fit homosexuality today."
