Will Phillips accepts GLAAD award

Video here. Much as I admire the kid's stance, I am generally queasy about strident kids repeating their parents' political and/or religious views. Haven't we learned anything from Jesus Camp?

That said, it's always tougher to parrot mom and dad's views when you'll be hated for it, and Will certainly was. Not standing up for the pledge of allegiance because of your commitment to gay rights most likely does not go over as well in West Fork, Arkansas as it might in Cambridge. If he's still a true believer a decade from now, I hope he runs for office. Or become a great scientist or something. He certainly does seem capable of rational thought.
