    To be honest he is not saying he hates gays.

    There is a difference between disapproving of something someone does and hating them. For some it is both and that's a bad thing. But hes free to disapprove of homosexual activity as long as he does not cause harm and is willing to accept your disapproval of him.

I disagree that it is ok though. One can have a basis for nearly any prejudice but that does not make them ok. People had Biblical reasons for racism, sexism and nearly every other ism you want. It is just a matter of what is needed to be justified at the time.

And while one person may not make a difference with their opinion it does make a powerful push when political parties take up that mantle and try to use religion as an excuse at various levels and places to make disliking those people legal or lawful.

Then it very much becomes hurting those people. Either financially, emotionally or potentially even physically.

To me that is why that sort of thinking goes too far. If it was just a personal belief it is still not ok morally speaking, but it is not bothering anybody. At this point, at least in the US, it seems that the most vocal Christian groups use attacking homosexuality as THE defining Christian trait.
