Barrowman is open about his sexuality and beliefs. He didn't care who he might offend when he said the following to The Glasgow Herald: "Organised religion says gay men are evil. So why would I want a marriage from a belief system that hates me?" In an old interview for US Magazine JB said that after accidently going into a religious chatroom he wrote to them, "You call yourself Christians, so why are you hating all these people?"
Charlotte Church was just named the most sincere female celebrity in a British poll. We already know she is not shy, but did you know that at the tender age of 15 she was already more insightful than most Americans? In reference to 9/11/2001 she told The Sunday Times after that attack, "People overdramatise and lose perspective."
And Torchwood writer/producer Russell T Davies who came up with the groundbreaking Queer as Folk has made no attempts to hide his homosexuality or Atheism when speaking with the media. In an interview with Spedders.com RTD noted that, "If Jesus Christ were alive today, he'd say 'Gay men? Fantastic. Good for you."
Good for you Russell, and good for us, as it looks like we are in store for a show that is being put together by intelligent adults for intelligent adults.
