They don't see homosexuals as being the way God wants them to be... So they think it's against their religion. Which is some bullshit because God makes us the way we are and if being homosexual is so unholy why did He create it? Homophobes are unintelligent bastards.
this is simple everyone has some attraction to the same sex even if they are straight.if this doeant scare you,you react calmly to gay people,but if you fear that feeling MAKES you gay(untrue) then fear causes an overreaction that is homophobic and anti~gay that "proves"to you and the world how straight you are.
I'm a Christian and am aware of the fact that homosexuality is a sin, but homophobia is crap. Homophobic people need to grow up and realize that that's not the life of love that God has called them to. They only split up the church and drive people away. It's stupid. I'm for love. :)
They're afraid they'r gay & go opposite to the extreme to prove that that is wrong. They THINK(I say this because I feel very strongly that he wouldn't have created individuals that were gay if he looked down so greatly on it) God is against it. Being straight is the "norm" & people think its cool to bash the "different". I personally think everyone has a right to their opinion, BUT they do not have a right to be outwardly cruel to gays just because they think they're better than them..
