Akenaton, it's clear they are, in reality, unhappy with the statistics, but lefty dogma won't allow them to admit it to themselves. In the resultant mental confusion, they lash out at the messenger.

I wonder how people can make such loud howls of protest with their heads so firmly in the sand? - it's not about god, not about homophobia, not about anything except protecting innocents against being drawn into a lifestyle which - statistically - is not good for them.
Same goes for the drugs scene - it's the job of the responsible part of society to speak out to protect the vulnerable. It's how responsible communities work.
On a lighter note, I loved Steve Shaw's post at 6.08 on the 12th!
