Agreed. Patrick doesn't know that some word combinations are less felicitous than others, but his heart is in the right place. Amazing that there's such a difference between "Some of my best friends are gay" and "I have many gay friends," but there it is. Regardless, I think the fact that some of his best friends are gay is the sign of huge progress in the world. That he was willing to wade in and make a statement at all is heartening.
