Daubenmire: 'There Was A Day When We Used To Think That Being Gay Was A Mental Illness'

"Coach" Dave Daubenmire doesn't understand what is so "special" about homosexuality that people get so upset when he criticizes, since nobody gets mad when he criticizes other sins like alcoholism and lying.

In fact, it is not all that long ago, Daubenmire reminded his viewers, when homosexuality was widely considered to be a mental illness, just as "schizophrenic pedophilia" is considered to be one today. Be he didn't "want to even get into the debate because the gay bashers will get after me again" for even bringing up the issue.

"What is so special about that sin?" Daubenmire wanted to know. "Why is it there's a movement behind that that is one of the most aggressive movements out there attacking Christian values?"
