"...phobia" is defined as an extreme, irrational fear of (whatever). If homosexuality can be described as somehow unhealthy and such a claim supported by some fact-checked actual *facts,* then we may look into that as a public health issue. Otherwise, homophobia is just another phobia as defined above. So far, we have not seen any such facts from the homophobes here.

To suggest this as 49 homosexuals were just murdered for who they were is cold and insensitive. And I must call it out for what it is: blind hatred. Tell you what, while I am rallying with other allies and gays in sorrow and mourning, why don't you get with the folks from the Family Research Council and the Westboro Baptist Church, and catcall at us from the periphery. And it *is* the periphery. Civilized society is actively recognizing that they are just people, as the rest of us are just people, entitled to all the rights and duties of "normal" people. And we are moving forward.

Ake, you are on the wrong side of history. You may have many other admirable qualities. But your homophobia is not one of them.

Saul
