Many conservatives would say they do not suffer from homophobia, since they do not “fear homosexuals”, while those maintaining more progressive viewpoints may use the term “homophobic” to describe any individual or community who does not view same-gendered romantic relationships as blessed by God.  Whereas some see homophobia as a legitimate and widespread problem of prejudice directed to the gay community, others see homophobia as another rhetorical plank of a progressive campaign to peel back Judeo-Christian norms and frame those who hold on to them as mere bigots, haters or ‘homophobes.’
