AGREED! Once again, the hypocritical self-righteous holier than thou fools feel they need to control everyone else. They do so due to the emptiness in their own lives.
BTW, homophobic people have the fear because they are not comfortable with their own sexuality. Perhaps a bit of homosexual tendency or active thought enters their mind.
are you trying to control them by telling them what to do?

and people are not homophobic because of their own sexuality, it's because it's something they don't understand and say that they don't like it because it's wrong when really it's because they just don't get it. AND, some people are "homophobic" because they probably haven't met a gay person who was cool enough to get to know. I was "homophobic" when I was a teenager until I met one of my now best friends. He is just like me to a tee...he even likes boys too ;)

Please show me where I told someone else what to do. I'll wait, which I know will be a long wait.

How difficult is it to understand? A person of one sex is attracted to the same sex. It's simple math. Forget about trying to understand the mentality aspect of it because it's unexplainable. These people have no idea why they feel this way, they simply do. BTW, it's not a choice.

The homophobes fear due to the differences from there lifestyle. They tend to believe their lifestyle of being straight is the correct path. Then some of the fools preach religion yet forget homosexuality is also in the Bible. The key issues is acceptance. They are people just like you and I, they simply prefer the same sex. If you don't care to accept, no big deal. But have the maturity to realize what they do behind close doors is nobody's business, the same for any heterosexual couple, and has no bearing on our lifestyles. Most people have no idea if their neighbors could be a serial killer, rapist, pedophile, wife beater, etc. and many are worried about someone being homosexual? Get real.

Bottom line, it's not about understanding, it's about indifference and most people who view indifference, fear it.

The only problem with homosexuals, as with ANY group or organization, is if/when they demand special rights or treatment because of their indifference. Otherwise, they don't bother anyone.
