    I thought it was the other way around, and I was going to say "What a perceptive remark!" (That is, preaching against homosexuality is like preaching in favor of slavery.)

    Even if one allowed a moral equivalence--which isn't there--the two situations are completely different. Preaching against slavery was preaching against the status quo; preaching against homosexuality is preaching in favor of the status quo, even if things are changing rapidly.
