“...for the world to tolerate bigotry and intolerance towards the gay and lesbian community.”
Since when is a phobia bigotry? Intolerance, maybe, but not bigotry. If I have claustrophobia, I’m intolerant of closed places. If I have agoraphobia, I’m intolerant of open spaces. But bigotry? No.
I think the term “homophobia” as applied by those who oppose it is a bastardization of the concept of phobias and should not be used, but if they want to use it then they should treat it like other phobias.
Gays abuse "phobia" and "phobe" deliberately as a propaganda technique called "jamming", trying to make righteous, honest people feel bad about themselves not on merit but out of direct, hostile malice aimed at shutting them up and shaming their honesty, dishonestly.
It's pure evil. Pay them no mind, except to contradict them -- with a bullhorn, if necessary.
The word he is trying so desperately to avoid writing (as it would expose his true agenda) is "acceptance".
