Defining Homophobia

Filed under: Uncategorized — kcillini77 @ 8:14 pm

From former NBA star Tim Hardaway:

“You know, I hate gay people, so I let it be known. I don’t like gay people and I don’t like to be around gay people. I am homophobic. I don’t like it. It shouldn’t be in the world or in the United States.”

Now, let’s get this clear. These comments are intolerant and homophobic. Having thoughtful, pursuasive moral reasons for opposing the practice of homosexuality and the political agenda of the gay-rights movement, while affirming the value and dignity of all people created by God (including homosexuals) is NOT homophobic, and is, by definition, decidedly tolerant.

Get it? Got it? Good!

  1. Good point. I liked the article in CRI Journal on the topic.
