A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend Atlanta Pride, and ride in the parade with First Metropolitan Community Church of Atlanta. Our mode of transportation was a brand new, bright red Mercedes convertible.

It was a pretty amazing experience. They don’t call it “Hotlanta” for nothing, although I’m not sure if the cute boys blowing kisses in my direction were aiming them at me or the car!

I got to thinking about that, and the other times in our lives when we are not sure of all the facts and so we, consciously or unconsciously, make up our story about what happened.

COMMENTARY: Questioning the wisdom of Boy Scouts' limitations on Scout leaders | VIDEO

Dear Boy Scouts of America,

I just want to be clear on who it is you want to lead your young Boy Scout troops.

It is my understanding that you will not allow the following men to lead a Boy Scout troop because they are gay:

• Barney Frank, who served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1980-2013.

• Neil Patrick Harris, award-winning actor

• Thomas Roberts, MSNBC anchor

• Elton John, megastar entertainer

I also understand that you are more than happy to have as one of your troop leaders someone named Glenn Taylor.
