Too little, too late. It'd be nice to think that a church (or in this case, a pseudoreligion) can change, and overcome the dated bigotry of its founder... but I'm not buying it. Homophobia is etched too deeply through so much of L Ron Hubbard's "scripture".
Furthermore, I don't think gay tolerance would be universally acceptable to those brought into the cult's sphere of influence through the Nation of Islam tie-up.
that's ALWAYS been the case - I mean jesus christ all fucking mighty you would be hard pressed to find bigger head bangers than Bill Robertson and Alex Sibirsky! Norman Starkey anyone? There have been some seriously "challenged" people in the upper echelons of the SO. Miscavige is just the runt of the litter.
