Thanks, I think you're probably correct. The logic is, well, NOT!
You know, I think about the millions of regular people who go to church (or synagogue, or mosque, etc) who simply trust their leaders (pastors, preachers, rabbis, imams) to tell them what's right & true. I doubt the majority of them show up feeling particularly homophobic but they are told "God said it" and if you don't believe it you're not a real christian/jew/muslim, etc.
I think these people (ordinary parishoners) are in many ways not so much to blame for their homophobia, it's the religious leaders. It's like when you take your taxes to the accountant you trust them to do it legally according to what's in your best interest. Don't these folks go to worship with the same expectation?
But whose interest is served by the multi-billion dollar anti-gay religious rhetoric? Just imagine how much money hate has put in their collection plate!
