    So you didn't actually have a point. Got it.
    As for your remark that "And numerous liberals/progressives have been caught saying absurdly racist stuff" you could do what I did and provide some examples in support of your observation.
    Like...... read the bloody OP??? And look at pretty much anything that comes out of Joe Biden's mouth....... Or Hillary's......

    We will never experience a shortage in morons. And no side has a monopoly on them.

    For instance, the imbecile at an IHOP harassing four soldiers in uniform started accusing them of being BLM and other things (language warning for link)

    Good.

    Since you agree that for every one who turned out to be gay or bi there are a couple dozen who aren't, then we are looking at 1 in 24 or less than 5% of their numbers.

    Coincidentally, that's also roughly the percentage of gays in the general population. IOW, there is absolutely nothing to the old wives' tale that folks who are outspoken in their opposition to homosexuality tend to be closet gays since there isn't a higher percentage of gays in that group than the general population.

    Thanks for playing

    Edited to add:

    Always bearing in mind as rogue06 pointed out "But for everyone of those there was likely a couple dozen who weren't." In other words, a few examples cannot be used to generalise about an entire group.
    I don't think this is a productive line of questioning. In context "being gay" is a rather simple binary question of men having/attempting to have sexual encounters with other men. "Racist" on the other hand always ends up being in the eye of the beholder.

    I have no doubt that a list can be provided to you. The op is a general example of what you are asking. But, I do not expect you to take any answer given to you, and instead excuse or dismiss, followed for demands for more answers.

    If thats your game plan, you are a waste of space and can leave now.

    I will not debate this post with you.

    Oh I am not disputing that. I simply gave a few names of individuals who have railed publicly against the "abominations" of homosexuality [invariably sodomy] and have then been caught out by their own behaviour.

    I suspect that for men like that those mentioned [and various others of the same ilk] there is a degree of self loathing and self hatred; and while I find the "outing" of such intolerant individuals amusing, it is also rather tragic. Namely, that because of the repressive societies in which these men [and others like them] grew up they felt compelled to repress and deny their own sexuality and could only be themselves clandestinely.

    That's true. I hadn't really thought about that before.
