Homophobia in the Name of God

Homophobia in the Name of God is an article, notionally about same-sex marriage in Canada, but which contains some interesting criticism of the stance of conservative religious groups. The author, George Dvorsky of Toronto, suggests that the criticisms made by such groups are in fact counter-productive to their own cause, a view that I am inclined to agree with.

    Dear Simon,

    When you cite approvingly the work of the president of the “Toronto Transhumanist Association, a nonprofit organization devoted to encouraging the use of technology to transcend limitations of the human body”, do you think you might be following Churchhill’s dictum about Hitler and the Devil (“If Hitler invaded hell I would make at least a favourable reference to
    the devil in the House of Commons”)?
