I know. I saw it. And I responded.I didn't state that no one believes that gay activities should be illegal. I stated that you won't find much support from Christians in America for making gay activities illegal.
No, sorry, you are narrowing the terms of the question to suit yourself now. You said "you won't find much support." That was very broad.If you have a poll, let me know. I'm open to a new fact. If you just have some anectdotal evidnce, don't bother.
I'd say there are still alot of good examples of christians who favor making homosexual activity (which is a broad set) illegal. That's all I said. If that's not enough for you, fine.

You are correct about one thing. As long as those who take money from religious right wing nut jobs to support legislation that forces others to live according to Bible Thumping judgement, I will be completely intolerant of said bigotry.I would expect your hyper partisan drivel and lack of tolerance for those that disgree with you to always be what it is, though.
Guilty as charged and damned proud of it.

Then show me this supposed poll confirming that there is wide spread support amongst christians to outlaw homosexual activity.sounds even if what you claim is true? And clearly it is not.

Oh wait, it was YOU.
As to the difference of opinion, that isn't the issue. It's the infliction of your opinion that infriges on the lifestyle and the rights of others. Gay behavior has ZERO impact on you. Your "opinion" and its enactment has massive impact on gay people.
Really a simple concept. Yet so difficult to comprehend for some.
You already argue that definitions in Webster's dictionary are wrong. As if it would matter?Then show me this supposed poll confirming that there is wide spread support amongst christians to outlaw homosexual activity.
And by the way, homosexual behavior is still illegal in 3 states. and several southern states still attempt to enforce arcane laws.
And there's plenty of right wing lunatics that want it illegal.
Montana GOP: Ban homosexuality
The official party platform declares an intent to make being gay illegal
Montana GOP: Ban homosexuality - Republican Party - Salon.com
Certainly things are changing, but a very large percentage of people still think gay behavior should be illegal. Wanna bet the majority of those folks are in fact Right Wing Christians?
Gallup has been polling American adults since 1977 to learn their belief whether homosexual activity should be criminalized:
Polls on most homosexuality topics show a gradual acceptance of homosexual orientation over time. The question of whether to legalize or criminalize homosexual behavior shows a curious anomaly. In the early 1980s, acceptance of homosexual behavior took a nosedive and did not recover until sometime between mid 1988 and the fall of 1989. The Gallup Organization attributes this temporary reversal to either the "conservative environment ushered in by the Reagan administration, or the beginning of widespread publicity surrounding AIDS..."
