|Now that gays have started being treated like human beings, far right fundies are in a tizzy and desperate to get the back hand. So what's a Christian bigot to do? Why, rebrand with new buzz words, of course!¨|
¨Last weekend at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., Christian conservatives were caught on tape planning a war not only on gays and lesbians, but a war on the word "gay" itself.
The occasion was the Awakening Conference. There social conservatives, convinced there is some sort of nefarious "homosexual agenda," planned a counter attack against what they perceive to be a dangerous liberal conspiracy to promote the gay lifestyle.
The conference took a turn for the surreal when panelists speaking at the conference suggested they stop using the word "gay" all together.¨ HERE
How to Disparage Gays Effectively
"'Gay' is a left-wing socio-political construct designed to create grounds for fundamental rights [based on] whimsical capricious desires," said Ryan Sorba, chairman of the Young Conservatives of California. "Gay identity does not exist."

Later in the discussion, it was suggested that gays should also be referred to as "anti-Christian."
