If you think homosexuality is wrong, go for it. That doesn't mean it's OK to beat them up and belittle them. That's what the thread is about. Apparently saying that beating them is wrong is a "proTgay" agenda, and saying that this group of people is a bunch of douches is an attack on all reigion and Conservatism.
This is the Catholic Church's official stance on homosexuality.
[H]omosexual acts are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.

Xian persecution is a fantasy which is promoted by groups and individuals who are afraid of societal changes they see looming over their self-perceived position at the head of society. They are afraid of true equality and interpret every attempt at elevating others to the same level they presently enjoy as nothing more than attacks on their own presumed right to lead. Our nation is not a zero-sum game - simply because others may claim equal rights and privileges does not mean you lose any - that is the definition of EQUALThe program is not about sexual orientation but rather about breaking up social cliques, which are especially evident in a school cafeteria, Ms. Costello said.
In some schools, cliques are socioeconomic. In others they are ethnic or religious or based on sexual orientation. By giving students a way to mix with other students, self-imposed social barriers can be broken down and bullying can be curbed, she said.
“Many of the targets of bullying are kids who are either gay or are perceived as gay,” she said.
But the idea that the program is intended as homosexual indoctrination is simply wrong, Ms. Costello added.
“We’ve become used to the idea of lunatic fringe attacks,” she said, “but this one was complete misrepresentation.”
