One could argue that a great deal of progress has been made over the past few decades regarding the rights of LGBTQ people in the U.S. and around the world. The tides seem to be turning towards a world where nobody gives a f*ck about the gender of who other people f*ck and it's ABOUT DAMN TIME. But sadly, homophobia is still alive in 2019, even if its most vocal proponents are the very bottom of the barrel of human scum.
If you're still a homophobe at this point, your company includes Mike Pence, a bunch of crusty old white guys in Congress, and losers who show up at LGBTQ events with signs that say things like "God hates fags" and "homosexuality is a sin."
Yes, this shit still happens. People literally take the time out of their day to go to Kinko's and spend money to MAKE A SIGN telling other people who they can and cannot love. In the name of JESUS CHRIST, no less, a man whose whole schtick was supposed to be spreading kindness, love, and helping those less fortunate.
Sometimes, the best way to respond to utterly ridiculous bigotry is with humor. One woman did exactly this, trolling a "Christian" protester with a homophobic sign by creating the perfect counter-sign:

And one Christian commenter perfectly broke down the ridiculousness of claiming homophobia in the name of Christianity and "God":
Next stop for this sign-wielding hero: Mike Pence's house?
