In today's USA Today there is an interesting article on Sergeant Darren Manzella, who is currently serving in the U.S. armed service and "outed" himself on a recent CBS "60 Minutes" about being out and gay in the U.S. armed service, serving in Kuwait. What caught my attention is that he was asked to join a group of 600 out-gay and lesbian military service personnel on an exclusive "MySpace" group, Guys and Gals Like Us.

My children know MySpace and other chat-room-like websites well, or too well, as the case may be with um, one son of mine. Nevertheless, it crossed my mind: why not create a MySpace group for gay dads and lesbian moms? Why not create a MySpace group for gay and lesbian clergypersons? This is where the websites and blogspots become more than ruminations and see-what-we've-done postings, but can actually create a virtual community and network of folks who can be supportive of one another.
