Religious reading for your Good Friday

Frank Bruni wrote a lovely column today. Here's one paragraph:
But in the end, the continued view of gays, lesbians and bisexuals as sinners is a decision. It’s a choice. It prioritizes scattered passages of ancient texts over all that has been learned since — as if time had stood still, as if the advances of science and knowledge meant nothing.
No one makes our case better than Bruni. He's a treasure.

Bruni makes this point as well: "Beliefs ossified over centuries aren’t easily shaken."

Chalk up yet another reason why we don't need religion. Yes, Bruni is a treasure. I hate it when he is away.
