If you find homosexuality repugnant, why do you also feel that gays should be denied basic civil rights? What is it in your religious POV that justifies or compels this hatred and acting out against people who (presumably) you exclude from your life anyway? If you had a free hand, what would satisfy you? To force all gays to be celibate? To murder them? How young? Would you take a child's life if it were obvious he or she was gay? I cannot understand this depraved hatred born of ignorance.
