"Gagnon has written extensively on the biblical view of homosexuality and has a history of linking homosexuality to pedophilia, promoting 'ex-gay' therapy and condemning being gay as unhealthy and dysfunctional.
"'[G]ay marriage,' as the ultimate legal sanctioning of homosexual behavior, will bring with it a wave of intolerance toward, and attack on the civil liberties of, those who publicly express disapproval of homosexual practice ...'"

This is the Episcopal Church Forum.
The Episcopal Church officially supports the Blessing of same-sex unions if the couple demonstrates a clear and consistent commitment to love and support and live in an exclusive, trusting bond with each other.
We do not advocate intolerance or any attack on the civil liberties of homophobes.
But, we do hold the right to express our displeasure with their hypocritical and bigoted views.

If your going to throw around terms like "homophobes" you should at least learn there actuall meaning and correct application.
"Hudson and Ricketts ( 1980) have indicated that the meaning of the term homophobia has been diluted because of its expansion in the literature to include any negative attitude, belief, or action toward homosexuality. Fyfe (1983) has also argued that the broad definition ofhomophobia threatens to restrict our understanding of negative reactions to gay individuals. Furthermore, Hudson and Ricketts criticized studies for not making the distinction between intellectual attitudes toward homosexuality (homonegativism) and personal, affective responses to gay individuals (homophobia). They indicated that many researchers do not state the operational definition of what they term homophobic. To clarify this problem, Hudson and Ricketts defined homonegativism as a multidimensional construct that includes judgment regarding the morality of homosexuality, decisions concerning personal or social relationships, and any response concerning beliefs, preferences, legality, social desirability, or similar cognitive responses. Homophobia, on the other hand, was defined as an emotional or affective response including fear, anxiety, anger, discomfort, and aversion that an individual experiences in interacting with gay individuals, which may or may not involve a cognitive component."
This is an important debate and your incorrect use of language only helps reinforce actuall bigotry twoards gay & lesbian citizen. By lumping together rational disaproval of poltical ends of some LGBT and real bigotry and intollerence your making it harder to root out the later for disaproval.
