DanG: Younger Gen More Tolerant

Councilman Dan Gookin: One thing that missing in the overall discussion is the generational difference of opinion regarding equal rights for the LGBT community, i.e., younger people don't seem to have an issue. Just last night, my youngest son returned from his Christian youth group (at RLM, by the way). I explained to him some of the upset. His response? “I have a moral objection to the homosexual lifestyle, but I'm adamant that they not be discriminated against.” He echoed sentiments of my other boys, who also consider themselves Christian. They support the philosophy behind this ordinance.
