Oklahoma City Pride Parade

Preparing for the Pride Parade On the parade route Friday, I took part in the Oklahoma Democratic Party's entrance in the Pride Parade for our gay and lesbian citizens. I like to remember the words of George Washington in moments like these:
As Mankind becomes more liberal, they will be more apt to allow that all those who conduct themselves as worthy members of the community are equally entitled to the protections of civil government. I hope ever to see America among the foremost nations of justice and liberality.
