I think gays are being used to push a Christian Right world-view.
They will not stop with gays, that is already apparent.
I don't really think that most of them will question gay salvation.
They don't want to come across too much like the American Taliban at present.
(And in fairness, there is a huge difference between heterosexism and genocidal homophobia.)
They want to sound kind and save gays from themselves, especially from the stereotype of the "bath-house" hopping gay from a very narrow historical period of the AIDS crisis between 1983-1996 (which by all scientific proof originated amongst heterosexuals).
It's part of bringing about a new fascist order, which will return some mythical "golden age of heterosexuality", or more specifically, patriarchy.
The idea to me is less about individual gays, than fighting for a Biblical theocracy.
If everybody is heterosexual (outside the Western serial monogamy at present), their kids will all turn out normal, with 'non-addictive" sex lives.
A bit like King David with all his wives and concubines.
Or perhaps a little like Jesus (who remained celibate according to the official scriptures, and that behavior would make humans extinct too).
The Bible tells us that heterosexuality results in normal children and relationships.
The Bible is full of well adjusted modern Christian families ... erm, let me just try and think of one quickly...
What is clear in Africa is that when countries tighten homophobic laws, it is the first step of dictatorship, the collapse of civilization and starvation.
All adults should have equal rights to relationships, no matter how long they last.
Or perhaps Kim Kardashian should never be allowed to marry again?
I mean, over 70 days is long for some heterosexuals.
But then one is usually talking about cult-like streams in Christianity that have landed their followers in divorce courts, psychiatric institutions or the graveyard.
It's the same nonsense as AIDS denialism.
A new phenomenon in Christianity seems to totally reject medical science, and focuses on dated material.
It's going to become an increasing problem, especially concerning chronic medication for children.
