    Let's agree with the opponents today, just for the moment, and say that homosexuality is a choice. Well, one may also consider religion a choice. In the last millennium, Jews were told: 'Being Jewish is a choice. Become a Christian and we won't kill you. Go kneel -- go kiss the cross,' but they would not. Why? Because the way we choose to love the divine is part of our very essence, part of who we are. Just as who we choose to love is part of our very essence, our humanness. Today, we look back in horror at that time, at that treatment of people because of their religion. In this millennium, we are learning to look back in horror at racism and discrimination based on gender. And even though we will lose this bill today, I believe in my heart that in the next millennium we will look back in horror at this smug failure to do what is right on behalf of all people.

    Gregory ("Greg") Louganis (born January 29, 1960 in El Cajon, California) is an American diver who is best known for winning back-to-back Olympic titles in both the 3m and 10m diving events. He received the James E. Sullivan Award from the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) in 1984 as the most outstanding amateur athlete in the United States. Louganis is of Samoan/Swedish descent and was raised in California by his adoptive parents, a Greek-American couple.

    At age 16, Louganis took part in the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Canada where he placed second in the tower event, behind Italian Klaus Dibiasi. Two years later, with Dibiasi retired, Louganis went on to win his first world title in the same event.
