And among the disturbing reports that have convinced Benedict that gays are destroying Creation...

But in the interests of fairness and balanced coverage, a piece of private investigation: On my recent trip to San Diego, I met a young man, a former Mormon missionary who said just before midnight, "Well, hate to be Cinderella, but I 'm outta here. Got to get up early for church, St John's Episcopal. They got a gay bishop. I'm gay so I guess I'm there."

Gay Teen Worried He Might Be Christian

Gay Teen
LOUISVILLE, KY—At first glance, high school senior Lucas Faber, 18, seems like any ordinary gay teen. He's a member of his school's swing choir, enjoys shopping at the mall, and has sex with other males his age. But lately, a growing worry has begun to plague this young gay man. A gnawing feeling that, deep down, he may be a fundamentalist, right-wing Christian.
"I don't know what's happening to me," Faber admitted to reporters Monday. "It's like I get these weird urges sometimes, and suddenly I'm tempted to go behind my friends' backs and attend a megachurch service, or censor books in the school library in some way. Even just the thought of organizing a CD-burning turns me on."
Added Faber, "I feel so confused."
