What sort of christian preacher and how homophobic was he and for how long?
I'm not sure we need to measure progress by reference to the most backwards among us. They don't get any kudos at this late date.

The preacher, Rob Bell, is a "megachurch" pastor and bestselling Christian author. Megachurch pastors tend to not be vocal in support of LGBT rights.
I disagree with the statement regarding progress. I think it means a lot when we have those who used to speak against us now coming out in our favour. I do think though that they shouldn't expect pats on the back for finally realizing that they should actually do the right thing. Apologies and restitution for the harm they've done in the past is more in order if they want to be truly forgiven.

It's the mushy persuadable middle that's the key to any change, not the guy who yesterday was earning his living as a professional homophobe. Which is what these fundierai$ers are...or have been...until yesterday.

You're a bigot.
Not all Christians are homophobic. The Lutheran Church (ELCA) and the United Church of Christ are only 2 examples of denominations that allow gay and lesbian clergy and allow gay and lesbian people to marry in the church.
The Episcopal Church has been supportive of LGBT equality for a long time. And the episcopal Church is generally not characterized as a "fundie" church.
Why don't you educate yourself before displaying your prejudice and ignorance so proudly ?

Hey axe grinding pedo, I didn't say all are. I specifically said fundierai$ers.
You just want to proselytize for the Lutheran thing. I'm surprised anyone there will speak to you. If they do.
