"Many of our opponents, particularly homosexuals, believe that we are "hate groups", motivated only by the kind of hatred that motivated slave owners and the KKK. Mr. Blaze referred to Townhall.com (in his Gile's post) as "one of the biggest conservative hate sites" on the internet. To Mr. Blaze and others, by opposing his "right to marry" and by saying that homosexuality is a sin, we attack him in an area so core to his being that it is difficult not to be angry. I understand his response and I don't know that I would respond much differently if I were in his shoes.
"Because of this difficulty, it is difficult not to lose ground with the very people we hope to help. When Fred Phelps or Doug Giles advocate violence against homosexuals, it makes our efforts much harder. They've crossed the line from disapproval to hate and have become just what some of our opponents think of us."
