    Some people feel that these folks are out to get their children and convert them to their lifestyle, and others fear that these folks are living the most SINFUL live ever and should be treated with no RESPECT!!!!

    A lot of people "live by numbers", Grace; which is to say that they have a mind-set of a robot  -  programmed with a life script, and permanently switched to "automatic pilot". They brainwashed themselves into a string of prejudices, rules, principles, and they can't, and don't want to jump out of that groove.

    Something like "flexibility", or "open mind" is a dangerous territory that feels like a threat to their very survival. Their "rules of engagement" in their inner battlefield can't tolerate "irregularities", and that's exactly what gays are to them.
    A threat that they may not even be able to completely define  -  they just don't tolerate them  -  period. Those prone to rationalizing their flaws will invent any imaginable reason why gays are "bad". Sometimes, or maybe  most of the time you may find them among perfectionists and moralistic fanatics who feel called upon to set the principles of normalcy on this planet.

    Well, Grace, if you ever happen to meet any of them, don't forget to feel sorry for them, because they are not aware they should.

      the word phobia is incorrect, and misapplied here.
      It is not a phobia to disagree with something you don't think is normal and not something that needs to be followed universally.

      The LGBT is not even a group that has a common denominator

    Fear that they may be romantically pursued by them.
    Fear they may pursue someone they assumed was straight but isn't.
    Fear that the object of their attraction was born their same gender.
    Fear their children will grow up viewing LGBT community positively.
    Fear their own children may one day announce they are LGBT
    Last but not least religious beliefs are used. Although everyone "cherry picks" which scriptures they will observe.
    They'll say: "LGBT is a sin!"
    So is pre-marital sex, telling lies, stealing, and a whole host of other things they themselves have participated in over and over again.
    Just as with racism some people only feel comfortable around people who are just like them. They don't want to accept or tolerate others that are different.
    In all honesty I don't believe there are a lot of people who are genuinely "LGBT phobic" especially if we define phobic as "fear".
    The reality is some people simply HATE whomever for whatever reason. They're not phobic or "afraid" of them! 
    The KKK and Skin Heads aren't black or minority phobic.
    A misogynist is not a man who is "afraid of women" or has a phobia of them. He simply hates them and believes he's better than them.
    Whenever the LGBT community seeks (equality) with heterosexuals they are accused of pushing a "gay agenda".
    Equality is not an agenda it's a right . Discrimination is wrong.

    When someone says they just want equal rights ... and then for their comfort, demand to censor your speech from printed works to public speech to terms people use.
    When they say they just want to be treated equally, and then they have the right to refuse to print Christian literature under their political rights, but the inverse case is not allowed because it is labeled as bigotry/hate speech.
    When they say they want equal rights, and now demand that a mentally ill man with a penis has to be allowed to use the bathroom and showers and changing rooms with girls - since apparently the right to privacy includes abortion but not a biologically intact mentally ill man in the changing room with you.
    When they say they just want equality, and then demand that religious institutions can't teach what they've taught before because LBGTA feelings trump freedom of belief, freedom of association, etc.
    And they get a pass for unacceptable conduct. When my son's religious school said they'd teach only traditional marriage and sexual behavior as doctrine, they decided to refuse admission to children of same sex couples to avoid a child coming home and asking why the parents were sinning.
    And the school received threats that they'd be burned down. Death threats to the principal, the administrator. Threats to kill the kids, threats to kill the bigots. In the name of "tolerance", they threatened to kill children ... but because it is the name of fighting "hate", liberals now have permission to hate and threaten those they disagree with.
