Homosexuality Quotes
"Homosexuality is a sin. Homosexuals are doomed to spend eternity in Hell. If they wanted to change, they could be healed of their evil ways. If they would turn away from temptation, they could be normal again, if only they would try and try harder if it doesn't work." These are all the things I said to my son Bobby when I found out he was gay. When he told me he was homosexual, my world fell apart. I did everything I could to cure him of his sickness. Eight months ago my son jumped off a bridge and killed himself. I deeply regret my lack of knowledge about gay and lesbian people. I see that everything I was taught and told was bigotry and de-humanizing slander. If I had investigated beyond what I was told, if I had just listened to my son when he poured his heart out to me, I would not be standing here today with you filled with regret. I believe that God was pleased with Bobby's kind and loving spirit. In God's eyes kindness and love are what it's all about. I didn't know that each time I echoed eternal damnation for gay people, each time I referred to Bobby as sick and perverted and a danger to our children, his self esteem and sense of worth were being destroyed. And finally his spirit broke beyond repair. It was not God's will that Bobby climbed over the side of a freeway overpass and jumped directly into the path of an eighteen-wheel truck which killed him instantly. Bobby's death was the direct result of his parent's ignorance and fear of the word "gay". He wanted to be a writer. His hopes and dreams should not have been taken from him, but they were. There are children, like Bobby, sitting in your congregations. Unknown to you they will be listening as you echo "amen" and that will soon silence their prayers, their prayers to God for understanding and acceptance and for your love. But your hatred and fear and ignorance of the word "gay" will silence those prayers. So, before you echo "amen" in your home and place of worship.... think. Think and remember a child is listening.

It looks like your new sweetie has turned his back on homosexuals, and not in the good way!

KAREN WALKER, Will & Grace, "Girls, Interrupted" (2000)

A homosexual with power... that's scary!

HARVEY MILK, Milk (2008)

If there should be an assassination, I would hope that five, ten, one hundred, a thousand would rise. I would like to see every gay lawyer, every gay architect come out. If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door, and that's all. I ask for the movement to continue. Because it's not about personal gain, not about ego, not about power. It's about the "us's" out there. Not only gays, but the Blacks, the Asians, the disabled, the seniors, the "us's". Without hope, the "us's" give up. I know you cannot live on hope alone, but without it, life is not worth living. So you, and you, and you... You gotta give em' hope... you gotta give em' hope!

HARVEY MILK, Milk (2008)

My grandmother thought that a homosexual was a person who slept with one person their whole life. We were gonna let it slide, but she kept telling the mailman she was a homosexual!

MIKE FLAHERTY, Spin City (1996)

Homosexuality...it just seems so, ah, ungainly to me. Two men together...it’s not an appetizing notion. But then, for me, men, in any configuration...they're just so lumpish and stupid. Stupidity gets me crazy.

HANNAH PITT, Angels in America, "Perestroika: Chapter Six - Heaven, I'm in Heaven" (2003)

Leonardo da Vinci was homosexual. So was Michelangelo, Socrates, Shakespeare and almost every other figure that has formed what we have come to understand as beauty.

REINALDO ARENAS, Before Night Falls (2000)

There's no way to get to the end of that sentence without saying that homosexual love is something less than heterosexual love. And watching you trip all over it makes me want to hit you on the head with Liberace!

MATT ALBIE, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, "Nevada Day: Part 2" (2006)

You know, I really gotta thank you gals for outing me. Chicks dig gay dudes.

DR. TODD QUINLAN, Scrubs, "My Lunch" (2006)

You're eighteen and you've never had a girlfriend. That's how people wind up getting gay, you know!

REX, Sex Drive (2008)
