The news this morning of Representative Mike Fleck announcing that he was homosexual, was stunning to most who read it. In reading the interview, I learned that Mike had been divorced since last year and that he has struggled with his sexuality for many years. That he sought Christian and secular counseling for his struggle and ultimately decided to live as a homosexual and announce that decision to the public. I spoke with Mike twice this week at events, including Thursday evening when we talked for awhile about several issues. He never told me what he was going to do or anything about his personal situation. He starts a new two-year term in January, his fourth. This has to be a very difficult time for him and his family. I don’t know what the reaction is around the area and doubt if most even know about the news. Tomorrow will bring more coverage, perhaps on a national level.
