The religious right continue their attacks on NBA player Jason Collins for coming out of the closet. Yesterday, Matthew Hagee, son of prominent pastor John Hagee gave his opinion as you can see in the above video.
The irony is that the religious right doesn't see what their attacks on Collins reveal about themselves. They claim to wonder why is it such a big deal that Collins came out of the closet. They claim it's not a big deal, that the "liberal" culture is making a big deal of it. Then they proceed to rip Collins from one end to the other for being gay in the first place, thereby proving why it's so important that in-the-closet celebrities come out.
The fact of the matter is that when a successful celebrity such as Collins comes out, it destroys all of the nonsense they spew about homosexuality being an "abomination" or a "dangerous lifestyle" which supposedly brings misery. It exposes all of what they have said about the lgbt community as a lie.
And that's why they are attacking Collins with such vigor. The religious right fears Jason Collins. Every interview he gives tells members of the lgbt community - both young and old - to not believe the lies and not to fall into the trap of negativity spun by the religious right.
