To go would be too blatant for them.

Pretty much any organization that has the word "family" in its name is anti-gay. Isn't that a sad commentary on how the right fringe has co-opted parts of our language?

Our existence in the flesh invalidates the right-fringe version of religion in its entirety

None of them can explain why GAYS are still here if we were all destroyed in their Mythical City of Sodom fable
.
We are living proof that their juiced-up version of the bible is false from cover to cover

It's not so much anti-gay but pro-decency. Family-oriented people and organizations are against anything immoral,indecent or that is a detriment to the traditional family unit. By design, homosexuality falls into this category. Therefore, yes they are anti-gay.

Fundie bigots made their Russian, Ugandan and Ethiopian bed. Now they should sleep in it, illegal, armed annexations or no.

That's too bad. A virgin birth, talking snake, and rising from the dead all seem plausible, but I just knew turning water into wine was too good to be true.

Now, now, that is _wine_ at least some of my local churches. Don't give up hope!

And try not to think too much about the whole, "I'm drinking human/divine blood," thingie.
