Short answer: nope. I don't get the obsession with it, or the other sex sins. Where's the movement to illegalize Cheezy Poofs because of gluttony?

And it is far easier to condemn people for sins that you would never be tempted to, and far easier to hate people you do not know and you are afraid of.
I'd add to this that it is something about which there is wider disagreement. Everyone agrees, I think, that murder is bad but if you believe that homosexual acts are bad then it's a position you have to argue and defend. This is always going to entrench people's views about it and tilt them towards a more extreme view.

Murder is nothing compared to homosexuality! Homosexuality is actively rebelling against God, while murder is just... murder!

And this is why homosexuality is the worst sin ever!

I think the social conservatives are concerned firstly with regular poofs. The cheesy ones are next in line.

Some people seem to be entirely incapable of being bored by the idea of boys doing certain things to other boys.

Would that be considered "titillating"?

Sorry, bad pun.

Well, assuming by 'boys' you meant 'men' I'd have to say that statement would accurately reflect myself ... but not for the same reason as those who think homosexuality is a sin
