    Speaking as a gay male growing up in Southen Baptist Tennessee, this line really struck home:

    The right instills guilt and shame, preaches being is wrong and when they're believed, they take that as proof that gay people are unhealthy, that being gay is wrong.  They then cite the damage they inflict as proof that they're right.
    That really is the way of things.  And even worse, most small-town Christians don't see this.  I'm not talking about the mega-church preachers, I'm talking about congregations of 200 or so.  They are the salt of the earth, will give their last dollar to help someone (I have seen this personally when a tornado swept through our county), but they just can't see how they reduce relationships to shame and sex.

    Minority rights should never be subject to majority vote.
