    that they believe that the god they worship only cares about the sins other people are committing.  We can point out until we are blue in the face to someone like this woman who rails against the sins of 'teh gay' that the same bible calls a lot of what they do sin as well and they will not hear us because they know in their heart of hearts that the sin their god really cares about is the one someone else is committing.

    That passed by; this can, too. - Deor

      Take the guy who was the head of the Religious organization actively working against gay rights and was having sex with a male hooker.

      Its not that he was gay or having gay sex with a prostitute, but that at the same time he was vilifying homosexuality and worse directly working to keep them from having equal rights under the law.

      Thats what I don't get....

      Not only can a small group of dedicated people change the world, its the only thing that ever has.

        To dupe people is to have some level of power over them. Socio-biology has a great deal to do with power relations.
        Sex has a socio-biological aspect in this area, that's borne out by the studies of rape.
        These biochemical conditions are very addictive .
        These types of religious right people, I think, have terrible levels of doubt about their faith. It's very convenient for them to externalize their doubt, the threat to their faith, in an "other". To politicize their faith.  
        At the same time, they have a lot invested in denial.
        And their addictions continue on a 24 hr cycle, 7 day cycle, one month cycle... etc.
        In other words, they're a mess.

        You can't make this stuff up.
