Umm.. Ben Franklin was an abolitionist, and a Founding Father. I don't know how tirelessly he worked toward it, but certainly his writings speak to this sentiment. How hard would it have been for her to conjure this position on his part?

the Bible passages condemning homosexuality will be ignored by mainstream Christians in much the same way those condoning slavery are ignored today.
