But we Love them...

Can anyone possibly believe that those who are against equality for gays and lesbians are not motivated by homophobia? I mean really. This is in Thursday's USA Today:
"Every time Americans vote on marriage, traditional marriage wins," said Wendy Wright, president of the conservative group Concerned Women for America. "As people become aware of the true homosexual agenda — that it is not about equality but indoctrinating children and discriminating against Christians — they shore up protections against it."
The homosexual agenda is about "indoctrinating children and discriminating against Christians."

Uh huh.

Homophobes, a bit of advice:

When you tell lies about people it is hard to believe it when you claim that you love them.

Meanwhile, some Presbyterians think we should remove the word homophobia from our vocabulary as it makes some who are against equal rights feel bad when they are called on it.

I think we'll keep this word for a while.
