They do it to atheists, too.<quoted text>
.. by badgering, insulting and condemning, bigots hope to rob gays and lesbians of their personhood ..
.. you see, the haters want homosexuals to be invisible. Again ..
.. ain't gonna happen ..
And in both cases, it's worse than just depersonalization. It's demonization.
Gays and atheists are abnormal, immoral, dangerous, corrupt abominations - threats to wholesome family and community life, and fit to be cast into hell to suffer forever with literal demons.
And look at how many of the Christians are outraged that we might resist that.
