That's true to a point, but there are still plenty of horror stories around women's rights--particularly abortion--that come out of South American countries which involve the RCC. Perhaps gay rights are advancing more quickly around the world than women's rights?

Oh, I think that is absolutely the case! This whole thing about "traditional marriage" is a call to return to wife as possession of husband. The closing of women's clinics not only makes it difficult for women to terminate pregnancies, it also make it harder to prevent them. Without a doctor's script, they can't get contraceptives. Keeping a woman pregnant can certainly limit her options.

That is great. Full marks for dad for how he handled it. Yeah, I really liked how he asked for help and received good advice--that is, from people who have actually been through it. :-)

This video has gone has become a holiday hit in China for the Lunar New Year. The message to parents: “Accept your children, welcome them home.” And for children: “Don’t give up. Your parents might not understand today, but maybe they will tomorrow.” It’s a sentiment that obviously struck a chord: the video has already racked up 100 million views.
