    but what sounds like insanity or sheer ignorant meanness to us sounds perfectly reasonable to them.  How can this be?

    You may not care, but if you do, here's where they are mentally.

    For the true-believer walking-with-the-lord conservative Christian, the idea that God can be wrong is unthinkable.  Unthinkable.

    God has prohibited homosexual behavior.  No doubt about that.  Paul didn't seem to think much of it, either.

    God cannot be wrong.

    Therefore, doing the nasty with a member of the same gender cannot be the result of a genetically determined orientation -- it must be a lifestyle choice, made by a naturally heterosexual person, and one clearly in open, knowing defiance of God's laws.

    To ever accept the obvious truth about what being gay or lesbian actually means in the real world would be to admit God was wrong.  

    Unthinkable.

    Therefore they hew doggedly and, ultimately, hopelessly to the claim that gays and lesbians are just willful perverts.  They believe it.

    That's the pickle their own leadership put each and every one of them in when they chose (and it was a choice) to make gay rights a cultural and religious battleground.

    They're in a box they can't get out of losing a hopeless war with history and public opinion.

    No wonder they look so sour.
