I saw this image on Facebook and it sums up why the Christofascists want to keep gays invisible. Yes, it's Colbert acting as him usual self, but it speaks a great truth: if people find out that we LGBT individuals are basically just like them, that we have similar hopes and dreams and, God forbid, that we have normal functioning families the Christianist anti-gay jihad falls apart. It also underscores why living out and proud and refusing to hide you are is the greatest weapon in the fight for full civil equality. It's easy to hate and oppose something/someone unknown. It's far harder when the targets of hate are one's friends, neighbors and family members.
