Fear is what it is, but sometimes becomes what you make it.
The religious right is so afraid that gays are deteriorating marriage, and yet it is their fear that isthe culprit, not the communities that they are afraid of. Could it be that the GLBT communities have and continue to be converting all the little boys and girls of the world? Not!
Historically, it is the religious right that tirelessly works to convert people, not the GLBT communities. Still, it is understandable why they would make such a claim: people tend to fear in others that which they see most in themselves.
