Yes, anti-gay opinions, not hat crimes and discrimination, which your above rant concerned ...Gays have to live with hatred, disapproval and unfair and biased comments and opinions and I think it is perfectly acceptable if they speak up against a very public figure who has anti-gay opinions.

Sex is sin.“Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong … Sin becomes fine. Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men … “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right … “
Why do fundies always revert back to focusing on sex? It's as if all sin was derived from Sex. But, yet, Jesus---who I assume these people really want to follow---never really spoke out against sex.
Sex, and every archaic rule associated with it, was mentioned in the Old Testament. Sure. But, it's not mentioned much in the new one. I thought the whole idea of Jesus was to put the old T to rest. After all, no one really follows all the crazy stuff written in that version of the Bible. For example, who follows any of this anyway?
