Chely Wright came out a few weeks ago, so of course, she went on Oprah. In the interview, she clarifies that she felt it was important to come out, not only for herself, but because she’s in a unique position to be able to provide a counter message to the hateful, bigoted messages young kids hear from their churches on the issue of sexuality.

Compare this to the words of, say, Matt Barber or Peter LaBarbera.

You might tear up a bit watching this.
