Homophobes just haven't come out yet

Given how many homophobes later come out as gay, I saw this in a book I'm reading ("Medieval Latin Poems of Male Love and Friendship", transl. Thomas Stehling) and chuckled:

"Multos invenies quibus exsecrabile verbis
est puerile nephas, set non a rebus abhorrent.

Plures, un celent quod amant faciuntque libenter,
id detestantur verbis, quo rebus habundant."

Or, in a non-dead language:

"You will find many who say that wickedness with boys
Should be cursed, but they do not shrink from the deeds.

Many, to hide what they love and freely do,
Curse with their words what they wallow in with their deeds."

I've heard the before, where the biggest homophobic people end up being gay themselves. It's a sad world we live in where some people hate themselves because of the society they are immersed in.

Sounds to me like a lot of unhappy Libs are lining up for SSM next week?
