There's no question that general acceptance of LGBT individuals is at an all-time high.  Enough Americans now support their gay neighbors that even Republicans are beginning to jump onto the bandwagon in meaningful numbers.

Even so, there's still enough anti-gay sentiment in the world that it's helpful to be reminded that many straight people are on our side - people who could choose to sit quietly on the sidelines at little or no cost to themselves.  A few such stories, to brighten your weekend...

-Brian McLaren talks about the Sunday that catalyzed his journey toward acceptance.

-Another pastor shares why he opens his church's doors to everybody.

-A straight guy exhorts his friends to consider how their words affect others.

-An ally talks about her gay best friend.
