"I want to talk first of all about something I heard from the very beginning by people of this Legislature that we are bigots as people of faith, because we do not hold that homosexual marriage should be codified. That somehow we are bigots and we are ideologues because we are people of faith. I want to address that hate. Everyone in this room who is a person of faith deserves an apology from one of the sponsors of this bill for calling us bigots."

-- Footage of "ex-gay" leader Greg Quinlan's testimony in front of the New Jersey marriage hearings earlier this week really highlights the dangers of religious indoctrination and the internalized shame of homophobia. He rails against "the gay lifestyle" and demands an apology from legislators for "religious bigotry."
