> I must be horribly biased. As I read Guggenheim's statement it is clear to me that he is trying to push emotional buttons by introducing off-topic social commentary on a polarized issue. Do you think he expected his quote to just sit there and be merely "bizarre" has Hobby pointed out or "neutral" as you claim? It may or may not be homophobic but I sure wouldn't call it "neutral."

Oh, he certainly knew that it would generate some emotional responses. That doesn't make his thoughts on the subject known and it certainly doesn't make him a homophobe. One can't know his personal thoughts on the subject with the words he used. Anyone reacting to it with statements about Guggenheim's bias is saying so from their own perspective on the matter, not by the statement he made.
