    Well, by the same logic, I could say "Christians have been attacking gays for the past 2000 years". I could say "Christian's creativity in devising ways to hate seems to show no bounds..." and so forth, right? Of course, I would be well within my rights to do so, by your exact same logic. So, unless you are going to say about the gander what you are saying about the goose, then I suggest you get a little perspective, and quit speaking from ignorance.

    The fact is that gay people embrace the idea of God more than I myself think is good for them. Religion does in fact become a weapon in the hands of hateful people, and there are a lot of hateful people out there, ready to forge such weapons anew. Gay people should attack the notion of faith and religion, not because all religious people are bad, but because faith and religion are so incredibly easily manipulated by bad people. But, only a minority of them do, unfortunately. And really only because that minority is already inclined to be atheist, like me, and many atheists do see faith and religion in this light. I will note with emphasis, however, that I am not saying "Christians are _________" or "Christians do _________" here.

    So, yes, there are people out there who do something which approximates your accusation (I am probably one of them), but it is not gays in general.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.
