Christians and Homophobia

I was at a gathering a long while ago, it was filled with some significant Christian leaders one of whom had his hand up for pre-selection in a major political party. Most where friends who had let there guard down with some the social lubricant; alcohol.
One of the topics that came up was the times they had been propositioned by the same sex. I could see the humor in this, there was though a darker side. A subtle and even blatant disdain for same sex orientation. It was a humor that the school yard bully would use as his mates stand around laughing at the victim.

It was not until latter with reflection that I wished I'd stood up, and said this sort of talk was wrong.
