there was a case where a church owned a pavilion on a separate piece of public access property at a boardwalk and rented it out all the time. They tried to deny a gay wedding there and tried to claim because of religious reasons which is complete crap lol
a pavillion is not a church
and they rent it out as a business
and the best part is when it was checked into they rented it out to other nonreligious weddings, non religious events and jewish events too LMAO what big dummies they were lying and trying to claim religion as a reason, you shouldnt lie to a judge
well the judge granted usage of the pavillion and then took thier tax exempt status away from them just for that piece of property
Although sexual attitudes tracing back to Ancient Greece (8th to 6th centuries BC to the end of antiquity (ca. 600 AD)) have been termed homophobia by scholars, the term itself is relatively new. Coined by George Weinberg, a psychologist, in the 1960s, the term homophobia is a blend of (1) the word homosexual, itself a mix of neo-classical morphemes, and (2) phobia from the Greek φόβος, Phóbos, meaning "fear" or "morbid fear". Weinberg is credited as the first person to have used the term in speech.
Again, the concept is ancient, the word is over 45 years old.
Funny part is that homosexuality was a mental disorder and now that many nations let people live off the dole for having mental disorders - it's quite popular now to classify homosexuality as a mental disorder - you know so gays can get subsidies from their European countries that for some odd reason now believe it's a mental disorder.

The word homophobia first appeared in print in an article written for the May 23, 1969, edition of the American pornographic magazine Screw, in which the word was used to refer to heterosexual men's fear that others might think they are gay
