Well, here in Kentucky, the number of politicians that are GLBT friendly is pitifully low. All together, our six U.S. Representatives and two Senators earned a mere 11 out of 800 possible points on the 2004 HRC scorecard. And an anti-marriage amendment passed here with 75% of the vote. We do, however, have one openly gay senator in the Kentucky senate! And another community leader who just came out is looking to run for mayor of Lexington, where I live.
One of the reasons I am passionate about Soulforce is that all along Soulforce has said that the root of GLBT oppression is this bad religion that seeks to make a heterosexual orientation morally and socially superior. When what should rightly be called out as individual prejudice is instead protected behind the phrase "personal religious belief."
It seems groups that have been working for GLBT equality mostly on the political front are really starting to see this as well.
