LGBT people are among many groups who have often been de- or sub-humanized. This episode is a re-play of one of our first, "Getting Humanity Right." Why replay it? Why listen again? It is vitally important in this conversation, in every discussion involving human beings, to first recognize and acknowledge that every human being is fully human and deserves dignity and respect. Period. From this starting point, we can have civilized and respectful conversations where heart meets heart. Each of us is the protagonist (maybe sometimes the antagonist!) of our own story. Our stories are stories of people seeking after, and growing in, the deepest longings of every human heart.
