Will homosexuality be the dividing line for our society? Without a doubt there are few hot-button issues in our country that incite emotional fervor the way the topic of homosexuality does.
On the side of public education, academic institutions, Hollywood, and mass media, to raise any objection to the right of the individual to choose behaviors that operate within the scope of sexual appetites and preferences is at best naive and at worst hate-mongering persecution. We like to demonize our detractors.
As a social experiment, test this one for yourself. Attend a WVU game wearing a University of Pittsburgh jersey or a Pride Parade with a sandwich board etched with the word “Repent.” Admittedly, neither would be advisable.
