From the church heresy trial of Jimmy Creech by the Methodists, after he performed a commitment ceremony for two women:

Gregory Herek, Full Research Psychologist, University of California at Davis: ( http://psychology.ucdavis.edu/rainbow) --

"In times past, religious leaders supported their ignorance about homosexuality by calling it a 'sin'. Secular authorities by calling it a 'crime'. Psychologists and psychiatrists by calling it a 'sickness'.

Now the research has been done. Homosexuality is not a 'sin', a 'crime' or a 'sickness'. People who still use those old labels, are really saying nothing more than "We disapprove of homosexuality or we dislike homosexuals."

Something for the Tank's pages on Christianity and the crimes against gay people? :)
