      ... right before the election, and then right after Prop 8 won here in CA last November, they trotted out all these locally well known ladies, writing letters to the editors, guest editorials, etc, all working off this script about how they were just so concerned for their children's well being and how much they loved the homosexuals but that they couldn't condone sin- but they certainly weren't bigots.  
      It was pretty sickening, especially the one where I found some of her other writing, seriously, I don't say this very often, but that woman needed therapy. She worked with children and it was on and on how she "loved" everybody (in that Biblical sense) but considered the ones with homosexual tendencies to be suffering from a form of mental illness that caused them to sin. And these control freaks wonder why the majority of their offspring don't become active in the church as adults, but leave- which is the issue they are really worried about, having that option to leave- imagine the amount of abuse that these kids take from their parents and authority figures for being born that way and being told they have to spend their lives in the closet or be cast into some void.
