Sweet Grandma Preaches Love and Acceptance

This is one of those rare videos that gives me some hope in humankind. Australian comedian Josh Thomas’ super-sweet grandma, who has three gay grandchildren, touchingly describes her opposition to her priest’s (and the Church’s) views on homosexuality. “It’s not for [gay people] to change, it’s for us to change,” she says in this video for the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras’ “Say Something” campaign. Her perspective, which we can hopefully come to take for granted one day, has apparently earned her the reputation of being a rebel in the Catholic church. Go, grandma! Thought Catalog Logo Mark
