    I guess this is a good thing, but why am I laughing aloud? Because I do the same thing every time I see a Bible Thumper go into his act? Let's not damn ourselves by faint praise.

    I would have expected this to be the truth and am glad to see it.

    However don't overlook the other side of the issue. Fundamentalists are immune to all considerations about their popularity. They can't care less if they are more popular than gays or not. In their minds they are fighting a war for god and nothing else matters. The more things turn against them the more determined they become.

    And when they're back into corners with no other recourse they're capable of resorting to violence just as they did over abortion. Bombings, arson and murders.

    Hurray for god.

    In a related story, it turns out that people prefer chocolate ice cream over gays and evangelicals.

    Hate gets old. Plus its unfulfilling.

    I think the majority of people in the US are becoming leery of social policy being dictated by 22-25%. It is sinking in that gays are a bell weather for other restrictive legislation aimed at social groups and institutions Evangelicals find offensive.

    It's probably even lower. Unfortunately gays reporting about the nut jobs makes their numbers seem larger. If we would ignore them they would go away .
