You forgot to mention that the guy holding the noose sign at the NOM rally, Larry Adams, admitted on tape to being tempted by gay sex.  As disgusting as that sign is, the interview left me feeling more pity than anger.  He actually expresses compassion by stating his main concern: he doesn't want them going to hell and that he wished they could feel God's love (even through he fails to realize they might already).  He honestly believes homosexuality is a choice because he feels he made that choice and just wishes others would do the same so they don't go to hell. 

Makes you wonder what kind of a man he would or could become without the Christianist influence during his time of confusion.
