I never said the organizers and participants were sitting around whining.

Which leaves me wondering why you brought up people sitting around whining in the first place?

Just take the political spin (which was indicated in the article) out of it. Hopefully a minority attendee who previously felt hopeless can get a positive out of it -- make new friends, etc.

I just re-read the article, and can't find any "political spin" in it - can you point out what you saw?

Of course, but I'd wager that 99% of the attendees already consider homosexuality normal. Agree? Disagree?

Attendees? Most likely. People who hear/read about it? Definitely not.

Well if the majority of young people support it, not much else needs to be said. The next generation is taken care of -- they'll pass it on to their children.

Sure, if the other side weren't fighting back, maybe resting on one's laurels would work. But when you've got various religious groups out preaching about the evils of homosexuality, you have to keep your message alive, or you'll end up losing ground.
