AIDS has made the fear of sexual immorality, particularly in relation to homosexual acts, ten times worse than it was.
The Church, and society in general, are so afraid that God has punished homosexuality that they have become moral hypocrites and violent opponents.
But this is just the modern equivalent of stoning.
Jesus refused to condemn the woman caught in adultery.
He said, "'Let anyone among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.'" John 8:7b (NRSV)
So it is time we realized what we are doing.
And refuse to punish homosexual acts.
