The only time a "fear" based word should be used is when discussing male homosexuals as disease vectors (HIV/AIDS) or when considering those who sexually abuse boys.

Bible does condemn homosexual actsIt is absolutely incredible that Mark Achtemeier, in his op-ed "Celebrating this servant of God," would argue that the Bible does not condemn homosexuality as sinful (Perspectives, Oct. 11).
I have read through the Greek New Testament multiple times, read the Torah in Hebrew, translated the Aramaic portions of the Bible, edited a book on the text of Scripture and teach Greek and Hebrew at the college and seminary level in the Milwaukee area.
Old Testament texts such as: "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination" (Lev 18:22) and New Testament texts such as Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, and many others, mean, in Greek and Hebrew, exactly what they mean in English.
Achtemeier's denomination decided, in the 1920s, to turn away from its former faith in an infallible Bible, an act that led to the resignation of the cream of the faculty of his denomination's seminary, Princeton, at that time.
If he agrees with his denomination that the Bible is filled with errors, let him say so. But to argue that the Bible does not condemn homosexual acts is an egregious misuse of the plain meaning of many passages.

From a purely scientific point-of-view, most male homosexuals (Who have clearly demonstrated a general lack of self control and sense of the "common good") represent a disease vector as do the plague bearing fleas on rats, the flies and cockroaches who hang about "unprotected" food and garbage, mosquitoes who carry malaria and other diseases and other like threats to the health of all People.
If the general and Jewish-Christian foundations of morality are ignored (As is the constant drum beat of the homosexual lobby) and only the science of successful public health programs is applied, the best prevention of any epidemic or endemic disease, including HIV/AIDS, is to liquidate the disease vector(s) most responsible for the spread of the attacking illnesses. Therefore, we kill rats and fleas, destroy flies and cockroaches as much as is possible, destroy mosquitoes and ...!
Of course, I cleave to those standards of human-and-humane behaviors held up by traditional Christian and Jewish standards and maintain that the best reaction is: Love the sinner and hate the sin" AND not the views held up (If not reflected in practice) by Muslims and their cousins, the NAZIs.
