We shouldn’t marginalize people for this. They must be integrated into society.” --Pope Francis. “We had gay burglars the other night. They broke in and rearranged the furniture.” --Actor and comedian Robin Williams. As the three quotations above show, there exist varied opinion on the topic of homosexuality -- one is serious (Clinton), one is subjective (Pope Francis), and one is silly (Williams).
