It’s always so easy to spot the true homophobes by their language. First, they use the word homosexual instead of gay. To them, it sounds more clinical, like it’s a disease or something. Anyone who really has gay friends would use the word gay, and we all know that.
Second, he has friends he suspects are homosexual? Well of course! Everyone knows he’s an anti-gay bigot, so who would come out to him? He doesn’t know if any of kids are gay or not? I”m not suprised — that’s because they know he’ll condemn them to hell, tell their parents to put them in reparative therapy and otherwise have utter disdain for them, all in the guise of tough Christian love, of course. I bet his virulently anti-gay son who is a priest in a monastic order is gay, and too scared to come out to himself, let alone his own father.
Third, he say he doesn’t hate people “who engage in” homosexuality. Please — I don’t engage in it — I just am! So this shows that he thinks homosexuality is merely an act, it’s two men or two women having sex, nothing more. IT’s why he always reduces us to just buttsex , and why he says that the constitution doesn’t require freedom to engage in buttsex.
So when he looks at his “friends” who are “homosexual” or thinks are homosexual, he just thinks of them as people who engage in buttsex. And he thinks the state should be allowed to ban it. And when he sees same sex marriage, all he sees are two guys who want to have buttsex and have that legitimized by the state. “Two men in love? What crazy planet are you on? No such thing!” is his thinking. “Men are to bring home the bacon and love their wives and put them on pedestals, while the women raise the children. That’s normal! And it’s how god created us all, and it’s why my church demands it!”
Forget about trying to change his mind. He’s an old fart whose mind was made up in the 1950s. It isn’t going to change any time soon.
