This chapter explores the predominance of religious rhetoric denouncing homosexuality as dangerous and corrupting illustrates how these harmful ideologies inform and sustain homophobic prejudices. Simpson's research illustrated how in Catholic controlled schools the topic of abortion was strongly informed and underpinned by powerful moral, Christian ideologies which framed this particular act within a discourse and ideology of 'murder'. Catholicism and Protestantism are both doctrinally opposed to homosexuality, but differ somewhat in their practical responses to homosexual identities. Evangelical Protestant perspectives rely more heavily on biblical testimony and classify homosexuality as part of a person's whole being. The 'lifestyle' argument is an interesting one to levy at homosexuality from a religious perspective given that religion itself provides a better example of a 'lifestyle'. In a form of self-fulfilling prophecy, the presumed sexual liaisons used to denounce homosexuality proved an outlet for some men.
