If he were real, Steve wouldn't insult someone for pursuing a same-sex relationship, but he wouldn't be dancing at "gay pride" parades either. There's a difference between hating someone as a person, and standing for the truth...even if it means disappointing or angering someone you care about.

By contrast, political correctness is all about attempting to equalize every choice, no matter how opposite from each other they may be. Its the mindset which popularized the phrase, "truth lies in the eye of the beholder".
Except that the notion that there's anything wrong with a same sex relationship is not true. It is, in fact, a disgusting lie.

It's kind of funny that you keep talking about "objective truth" and keep bringing up something you believe that is not objectively true and you simply want it to be true.

Steve would support gay rights because he's a decent human being who recognizes that there is nothing wrong with being gay and any "evidence" that says there is is a bunch of nonsense cooked up by people with a ****ed up bias.

The world does not work the way you think it does:
