They fear losing the power of being able to oppress a group they consider inferior to them.

I agree.

And one of the most powerful of those hate groups is the Roman Catholic Church.

I think it's because other people are living their lives to the fullest but their own repressive religons are keeping them down. I think it's more resentment than fear.

They are f@&ked up on the lies of religion. I pity them.

If that freak's genetalia is as ugly as his/her/its personality, fear would be justified.

I disagree with the article. I believe the cause of theocrcacy is not weakness of belief but rather personal and cultural unhappiness. People cope with unhappiness by (1) trying to make outsiders unhappy and (2) trying to make themselve feel better by believing they are elite because of their religion.

It should be telling that countries that typically score high on ratings of personal happiness - Scandinavia and France in particular - are those with the least religious populations.

John,

But the roots in the individual are still fear. You'll notice that most people who are happy are also not as fearful of others.

Sounds like they fear not being free to officially label anything they want as "Nasty & Perverted". Whatever will become of the world if your opinion no longer has the power to ostracize and marginalize?

If you're going to quote Martin Luther, you should at least give him credit.

This language is *why* individuals and groups are being called hateful. It resolves nothing, explains nothing, and gets you attacked (rightfully so) for acting like a rapist scumbag. Do you *really want* to perpetuate all of this nastiness? If not, learn to shut your goddamn mouth for once and think before you type.

Otherwise, all of this *will* continue, and hate groups *will* continue to be designated as hate groups.

Period.

Indeed: I believe it's honest-to-god quaking terror. The ultraconservatives and that ilk *really have a terror* of all of this because it is "unknown." However, they squander every opportunity IMAGINABLE to express this in ways that would provoke empathy or a desire to help; instead, they act like selfish rapists and perpetuate exceptionally vicious nastiness on both sides.

I am extremely proud of the pro-gay, after this shooting, for *blanket-refusing* to stand down and, instead, for explaining tirelessly and endlessly that antigay rhetoric is *the very root of the problem*-- which it is.

“Good day to you!”

LOL...and that was a typical biased reply.
Theism's roarearer based in the age old question "why". From why came thoughts of superstitions because they had no intelligent answer. They didn't know why that yellow thing in the sky rose in the morning and went away at night. They didn't understand why another source of light at night rose in the sky and seemed to disappear when the other light came back in the morning. For a long time they didn't understand what took place when two people did it and sometime later another person appeared from the female. They didn't understand why sometimes it was a girl and sometimes it was a boy. Superstitions came to be the practice/belief of theism to explain the unexplainable. It had no roots in personal and cultural unhappiness and still doesn't. Silly boy, tricks are for kids :)

I honestly don't think they know themselves.. perhaps a throwback to the seventeenth century and the burning of witches; and the resulting infamy of such acts..

Most people that appear to be quite happy,(not saying that their not mind you) are usually the most biased against change. Their appearence of happiness is largely based on what they don't accept that would cause them misery and unhappiness. They are usually more sure of what they believe in and what they don't believe in. These people are usually the ones that react the toughest to change. To change and accept something new means to readjust how they feel of an issue and that issue is usually connected to other issues directly and indirectly. So change for them takes longer then others. That's because their more in tune with what makes them happy and what makes them miserable/unhappy.

The anti-gay groups have "the haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy."
