Shall we hold our breath and wait for a course on “working with Christians”?  With the current campaign to shove gay marriage down everyone’s throats, we might be finding more and more Christian objectors needing legal representation.  
Sorry, I don’t get it.  Believe it or not, I actually know some gay people.  And you know what? They appreciate being treated just like everybody else.  They’re not asking the rest of us to go through special training or seminars.  Or to change our lifestyles, for that matter.
