Anti-gay in the first person

alternet has a good post up today with a few first-person accounts of anti-gay vehemence, taken in the heat of the battle to pass a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in texas... a sample...
"The bible is very clear -- homosexuality is an abomination, and I do think homosexual marriage should be illegal. This is not just my opinion. This is God's opinion. [...] [S]in is sin. We're not animals. We're people, and I do not believe that you're born homosexual. They only have two signs over at the hospital: blue ones for the boys and pink ones for the girls. God knows when we're born what we're supposed to be."

many cited statistics...
[She] rattled off numbers that come from widely discredited reports by Paul Cameron. The chairman of a right-wing outfit called the Family Research Institute, Cameron was dropped from membership in the American Psychological Association in 1983 for lack of cooperation with the Committee on Scientific and Professional Ethics and Conduct.
