I know the film well, as I knew Father Mychal, too, I might add. I was the Parish Council president of an Upper West Side parish where a good friend of Father Mychal's was in residence (oddly, his name was Michael). We would visit with Mychal frequently at his parish house. Our purpose, with the GayWisdom blog is not necessarily to promote every gay-centric film, but to give notice to those that would normally not "be on the radar." "Saint of 9/11" got lots of notice (particularly here in NYC) when it came out, so we didn't think it needed any boost (if that's what it is) from us.

That may well be...and we can only hope you are right. But like LBJ, we need to keep the pressure on so he can act. LBJ himself said that he needed the pressure of the Black Civil Rights movement to make the changes he made. I think the same is true of Obama. On one point I do disagree, though: he could, with the stroke of his pen, by executive order, just like Truman did, suspend DADT and stop people from being drummed out of the service, And purely as a matter of national security, given how many Arabic interpreters we're losing. Marriage equality is the least of my concerns, personally. I happen to think that's not one of the most important things, either. Granted, it is a matter of constitutional rights and equality, but there are other, more important things that relate specifically to the GLBT community that could be done.
