From the amazing man himself.

No need to be too harsh to the man. Not "coming out" is not active deception, it is merely not making a public statement. It would be a deception if he had married and paraded his wife around like some closeted politicians and evangelists.

I can respect his lifelong silence on the topic, one picks his battle.

In an ideal world people shouldn't have to "come out". We should all just mind our own business.
