On Homophobia

Real Menard (Bloc Quebecois MP for Hochelaga) is really going strong in this same-sex debate. My favourite thing he's said is that opposing same-sex marriage is not necessarily tantamount to homophobia, but voting nine times against every bill recognizing gay rights of any kind (as the Conservative-Reform-Alliance has done over the past decade or so) most definitely raises legitimate questions about homophobia.

I wonder if Real Minard Bloc mp is as concerned with parties that may commit treason as he is of those who may or may not be "homophobic".
"Anglophobes"
Somehow I doubt Real is very concerned about anglo heterosexuals.
Making him because of his office a real (no pun intended) hate criminal.

I saw Menard's response and although he could have dug himself into a hole by crying "homophobia", I too thought he explained his reasoning well.

Question ...?...

I'm not a religious man by any means, but if a person of faith believes what he believes, does that then make all homosexuals "religi-phobes"? I think not. To use blanks57s' term, does Quebec wanting to be a nation-within-a-nation make them a bunch of Anglo-phobes? I think not. I would just rather see actual debate in parliament instead of the name calling we've been seeing, and which is getting worse as the years pass.
