This. All of my why/hate. I live in a very conservative suburb that's overrun with Mormons and various Evangelical/batshit Christians who are disgusted with the mere thought of attending the same community college with gays. It's a shame, too, because these people are usually cool to hang with and talk to, but then I make a harmless joke about the Bible (like some random crap about smiting me for not doing my homework) or say that I think gays have just as many rights as the rest of us and suddenly they look at me like I just sacrificed a baby to Satan and then drank the blood. It's fucking crazy, man.
