I am not sure there is a real conflict here. Let us suppose for
arguments sake that 50 million Americans believe that sexual intimacy
ought to be reserved for heterosexual marriage. Let us further suppose
that only 50 thousand of these citizens believe this precept should be
enforced by violence. It would be the case both that they represent a
minute percentage and there is a lot of violence.

No, it really isn't nonsense. Anti-gay violence exists on a far
scale than you are prepared to admit. Sorry.

Nonsense. The number of people who believe they have the
to "bash in gay heads" is a minute percentage of those whose faith
teaches that sexual intimacy is reserved for heterosexual monogamous
marriage, just as those who blow up abortion clinics are a minute
percentage of those faith teaches that legalized abortion is wrong.
Assault is never a matter of religious liberty and I can't begin to
fathom why you would see the two as intertwined in any way whatsoever.
That fact that a handful of fools who should be locked up think so
doesn't mean that the vast majority of those who fight for religious
liberty are on their side. I've seen enough of your postings to know
that you know better than that.
