Pope John Paul II
The first principle is that you must not fool yourself and you are the easiest person to fool.
Richard P. Feynman
I think what you're seeing is a profound recognition on the part of the American people that gays and lesbians and transgender persons are our brothers, our sisters, our children, our cousins, our friends, our co-workers, and that they've got to be treated like every other American.
