A North Carolina republican judge who ran as a born-again Christian, came out this week.

After reading the article, I would like to congratulate him for his honesty. Coming out is never easy, especially in his case, and he deserves acknowledgment of it. I probably won't agree on political issues with him, but that might change as a friend of mine whom I've known over a decade recently switched from Repulican to Democrat basically because he was finally sick of the religious right overtaking his party. I also used the Internet to help me come out, although it began with writing to a man with a shared interest in mystery novels. He is openly gay, and it took me a couple of years but after visiting him in Cincinnati I finally came out after my visit. And, like him, it wasn't just sex talk but issues and feelings I needed to express. However, the chairman's comments show him to be a huge bigot. If he is reelected, I'm sure it will be for his work, but if he's not you can be sure it's because of his honesty.
