    But sin simply means to violate what is right.

    Those who don't believe in God can also "sin against themselves" as the bible describes someone who knows what is right but makes the wrong choice.

    Sin is doing something you know is wrong, if you don't "know" homosexuality is a sin then you can't commit the sin. This is relativist of course, but that is how the bible talks about those who don't abide by biblical morality, and still describes the wrong behavior as "sin".

    Unfortunately in the modern world sin is only associated with a religious violation, rather than a moral violation general to all humans.

    edit: (well, maybe not unfortunate, as there are plenty of other words to demonstrate a wrong choice)

    I would venture to guess that there are a small number of true homophobes. (scared, for whatever reason, of gay people).

    The definitions that both I and Tex posted agree that fear is not the only thing that can be homophobia. One that Tex posted included "discrimination against homosexuality".

    Not even close. The actual definition is an irrational or unreasonable fear.

    Wiki goes FAR beyond fear.

    Homophobia is a range of negative attitudes and feelings towards homosexuality and people identified or perceived as being homosexual. Definitions[1][2][3] refer variably to antipathy, contempt, prejudice, aversion, and irrational fear.

    Its a classic liberal tactic to expand a definition of a negative word to apply it to anyone who doesn't agree with them and that's exactly what wiki is doing.

    That is completely false. You need to re-read the definitions again.

    Yeah, you can find and prove anything with the webz.

    The etymology of the word suggests fear, and only fear.
