Well, now that North Carolina has outlawed queer love, the floodgates of hell have opened. Let me be clear - I am not talking about a sudden increase in the number of gays entering the Flaming Gates, (though I am sure many flaming gates could do with a decent re-do, if you know what I mean,) but about the real faces of so-called Christians finally coming to light. Caught this little gem today from a wire story:
