People can pay a huge price for being gay. You can lose your family and community and many are taught they’ll even lose their eternal soul to hell. They can have a great deal of incentive to deny that they are gay. Openly hating gays is a way of proving they aren’t gay. They might be trying to prove they aren’t gay even to themselves. There’s no hatred quite like self hatred.
