Imagine this hypothetical situation: you're implicated in a child molestation scandal in your powerful and influential organization, and the whole world eagerly anticipates your response to these allegations.

Lesson 9 is driving California bigots crazy

I'm going to make no bones about this; if you find homosexuality repulsive, wrong, unnatural, weird, disgusting, freakish or sinful, you are a bigot. Now, the good news is all of us are a little bigoted in a bunch of usually unconscious ways, so you're not alone.
