It is too make their lifestyle acceptable to all people and to silence those of us who stand up for the Word of God in opposition to them. Think about it, why are homosexuals so egarer to press the issue of coming out of the closet? Its simple, they want to parade their lifestyle in the faces of others and God damn you if you oppose them. Being a sodomite does not make one special[especially in the eyes of God, for He is no respecter of persons] so why are these sinful people intent on wanting to be "openly gay" in the military and in the workplace when most people do not even care about what they are? Is it hard to keep it to themselves? You neo-liberals who support these people are suckers who've been easily duped by their message. They tell you dumb neo-liberals that people like the Bass and others who don't support the sodomite lifestyle are intolerant, while it is they who are the intolerant ones. I bet some dumb neo-liberal or misguided person will think this post is "homophobic".
