This is exactly what I’ve been saying. I am against the petitions to have Tony Perkins banned from CNN and other news outlets for this reason, or to shut down any homophobes soap box. I think they should be allowed to speak, not only as a matter of free speech, and not only as a matter of appearing fair, but to expose their nonsense. No one is getting us more supporters than people like Bryan Fischer and his ilk.
The more people see that they just hate gays irrationaly, the more people discount all their arguments, even the ones that seem valid. Even now, Maggie Gallagher and Brian Brown are being exposed as just the usual bunch of gay haters, and their campaign has nothing to do with saving “traditional marriage.” Let them reveal themsevles — young people are not stupid and they see through their BS. Older people eventually realize that they have nothing but hate.
