8. He is a Jew and gay.

Something for which I, personally, understand. The article was about expressions of anti-Semitism from within the gay community, not "apprehension" about religious people, though he does touch on his own prejudice regarding any religious person.

Do you understand that these statements are anti-Semitic?

“Jews are a drain on the economy, living off taxpayer money,”

"Jewish people were ugly"

Jewish lesbians were kicked out of the Dyke March in Chicago because some marchers were offended that they carried a rainbow flag with the Star of David on it.

Do you understand those comments are not about how religious or not a person is, but that they are Jews!

The article is about anti-Semitism in the GLBT community and the need to address that bigotry, not make excuses for it.
