Three GOP congressman make “It Gets Better” videos

It’s a mixed bag.  Their records on gay rights are hardly perfect.  But they’re not 100% awful either.  Two of the three support ENDA, the third only supports civil unions (but it’s a start).  I’m not going to give them a pass, but I also think it’s important to acknowledge that these three are sticking their necks out a bit here – they’re the first GOP congressman to make the videos – and we should probable welcome it and them.  While we may not see this as much, you’d better believe the religious right isn’t going to like them doing this one bit.
