There is absolutely no question that the most virulent homophobes are usually men who have latent (or not so latent) homosexual desires and do not know how to handle it.
peil is undoubtedly a latent homosexual. In fact, it's likely that his inability to deal with his homosexuality is what drove him to the religious fanaticism in the first place, in a pathetic attempt at expiation.
There are a few members here who have distinguished themselves as being the worst of their breed. Some are long gone. A few (including one very notable member who seems to need this place like the rest of us need air), are still here. I can say honestly that I have seen no better example of sheer bloody-minded ignorance and stupidity than peil. He's recognized as being probably the least intelligent member we've ever seen. It would be impossible to start listing all the idiotic things he has said on here. Just to cite the most recent example, he said that the HIV virus is commonly transmitted when one person sneezes on another. He has also called AIDS 'God's curse on homosexuals'. The difference between him and some of the others is that he actually believes all of it.
