As in A Tale of Two Cities, these are the best of times, these are the worst of times, for LGBT people.  As  for the best of times, progress in many states and countries is astounding.  As for the worst of times, there's the Middle East, Africa, and now the darkness takes its hold on Brunei, where sharia law includes stoning of "sex criminals" including LGBT people.  " As per its provisions, sexual offenses such as rape, adultery and sodomy will be considered punishable acts for Muslims. Consensual sex between homosexuals will also be criminalized, with death by stoning the prescribed punishment."

Good point, sk8eycat.

On another note.

I have read that people who were raised to believe that sex is "sinful" and/or "dirty" have a tendency to obsess about it...their own sex lives and everyone else's.  Jimmy Swaggart was a prime example.

Also, when they read or hear a word like "homosexuality," all they focus on are the three letters in the middle:s-e-x.  They think it's only about sex, not attraction, affection, love, building a life with someone. 

That's the way they look at heterosexuality, too...that it only has to do with the physical act, because that's the way THEY compartmentalize it in their own minds.  If they have minds.

I saw something about this on a tv program. I think people who are so concerned with a stranger's sex life are the ones with the problem. I also think they have homosexual tendencies. Why else would they care.

Extreme homophobe Uganda minister accused of promoting homosexuality by showing gay porn in churches.  Huff Post article.

Martin Ssempa is part of  the cadre of killer sharks circling the helpless gay people in Uganda with persecution, arrest, demonization.  He was famous for showing gay porn at his churches, supposedly to promote disgust, and for "educational purposes".  

"He explains to the Church what the homosexuals do step by step baring all and hiding nothing. Pastor Ssempa has homosexual porn on his laptop and all his gadgets. He almost seems obsessed with it."  I doubt that he shows loving scenes of gay couples.  Whatever he shows, I imagine there are hetero equivalents to each scenario.  Regardless, if I was a gay teen going to his church, it might be the only access I have to show there really are other gay people in the world, and I might feel a little inspired, in a perverse way.

If you swim with the sharks, you better not have any bleeding wounds.

Those "terms" seem to be coming from the same hyper-bigoted talk radio dingbats, like Limblow, who still calls any woman who wants the same rights in the workplace as men a "feminazi."  He's been doing that for 30 or 40 years.

These people have NO logical reason to discriminate against anyone, but for some reason they fear women, LGBT people, immigrants, people of color, whatever, so all they can do is call us names.  Like little bullies on the playground.

They are  driven by irrational fear, that they can't express except by name-calling.

Oh dear! I have not been aware of the language used by people who should know better, yet speak without embarrassment when referring to GLBT in such venomous terms. Your example, Daniel, is so full of hate language, even in the face a growing awareness that there is no reason to fear or shun people of different sexual orientations.
If anything, the shunning should be directed to those who raised up little girls and boys to deny their sexuality. That is true child abuse

Dear Sentient, "conservatives" are only concerned with conserving their own money and power.  They claim that everything was just dandy in they "good old days" when people like Astor and Prescott bush's father ruled Wall St...and garment workers starved (or died in fires.)  They hate all the reforms that FDR's administration introduced, and would be delighted if middle class workers all died the day they turned 65...well I would have been happy to do that...then...but that was 10 years ago, and now I'm adding my little bit to the fight for EVERYONE's constitutional rights.  I don't give a sh*t what color they are, or who they love, or even what they worship...as long as the latter keep their beliefs out of my government, and face.

I'm an angry old b*tch,  And I've had enuf of smarmy politicians.

I may have to stop reading the LGBT blogs. The proliferation of hate language gets to me. It's nothing new, but having lived this long in a hate filled world filled with people who are enamored of their own words and hate, it's tiresome. The words "gaystapo" and "homofascism". Placing the word, gay, and marriage when applied to glbt people, in quotes to imply "so-called gay" and "so-called marriage". I suppose, we could start placing the words "conservative" in quotes, since people who claim the term are not into conserving the environment, or fostering prosperity of all Americans. And placing "christian" in quotes, since they clearly don't follow the teachings of christ, and clearly don't obey the bible except where they find it useful.
