    It’s wonderful that this program was saved/restored, and surprising to see the burgeoning enlightenment that was taking place at this early date. Many thanks for bringing it forward and sharing it!

    It is fascinating listening to this rather enlightened group of people who formed their opinions without letting their own religious beliefs to taint their opinions. It would be interesting to study how over the past 65 years religious bigotry has grown as gay rights has gained momentum. It almost seems that when homosexuality was listed as a mental illness acceptance was less of a problem. When the American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from it’s list of mental illnesses and gay liberation and gay rights started to gain speed, the opponents of gay rights started to turn to their bible as justification to hate us.
