Many in the Christian Right say that homosexuality is "repulsive". But what I find repulsive is the blatant hypocrisy of many fundamentalist Christians like the example you gave above.
Hypocrisy equals dishonesty. In fact, to say that one believes one thing and then does the opposite is the epitome of dishonesty and is typical of many fundamentalist Christians. To say, "I believe the Holy Scripture is God's law that we should all follow,"
and then ignore most of scripture is hypocritical. The fact that such behavior continues on such a great scale is, to me, repulsive.
It's no wonder the fundamentalist Christians say they get no respect. It's difficult for many people to respect that way of thinking.
