From what I've seen here there are many Muslims and Christians who think that love and care are the first rules, no matter who you are, and after that they'll think perhaps about whatever else their religion wants. But you never know beforehand..
>Black Protestants saw atheists as the biggest threat to physical safety
That surprised me.
John, I saw that Guardian article earlier today and it made me think about the legitimacy of my own internal "gaydar." It's really hard to pinpoint or put into words, but recognizing very subtle physical attributes can often be used to identify sexual orientation to a certain degree of accuracy more often than not. At least that's my anecdotal experience.
Andrew, you bring up a good point. Mainstream religion is not innocuous. As gay-friendly or socially progressive as these churches may be, they legitimize and normalize ridiculous and bad ideas and form a broad, strong foundation from whence fundamentalism springs.
Here is a concerning article about the use of AI to determine a persons sexuality as gay or straight. It does suggest the consensual scientific notion that sexuality is genetic, rather than a choice though.

Why can't the USA be more like Canada?
To me it's particularly objectionable that they use the lie that it's a choice to justify their condemnation and bigotry. Even if it were a choice, so what??? It's no one's business how someone else likes to make love, and they should just stfu.
Things were significantly veering toward normalcy until the recent extremist takeover. I think it will be a while before we see the WH bathed in the rainbow colors again. The root problem is a widespread failure (or refusal) of so many people to distinguish between fact and fantasy.
With our current administration I feel like we're living in bizarro opposite-world, where everything that once was good in now bad, and everything that once was bad is now good.
That's why we not only cannot be more like Canada but we cannot even act like an intelligent, empathetic, and rational country.
