People like this seem to believe that freedom of speech somehow exempts their own speech from being analyzed by others. They are wrong. It works both ways. If you say stupid homophobic shit, then you're going to be treated like the stupid homophobe you are.
There are still churches in Florida, and other places in the south that have some quip about homosexuality being a sin on their church signs (some quite derogatory) yet that older woman thinks those signs, and the array of abortion billboards going up and down I-75/turnpike in Florida, a billboard that showed Obama in the last election with the world trade centers being hit planes
, and a plethora of other things that many would find negative done by Christians (or other religions) as actually being "positive" things.
A man kissing a woman in her eyes is positive. A man kissing a man or a woman kissing a woman (in a sexual/romantic way) is negative in her eyes. What she, and those that think like her, which is a lot of people, are right and everyone else is wrong.
They believe in freedom of expression, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedoms a plenty but only if they abide by their point-of-view of how things ought to be.
That's not freedom, and they just don't understand why it isn't.
