Homophobia Controversy At Ole Miss

olemiss(CNN) — When will homophobia in the United States start seeming so ridiculous it’s laughable? Not in 2013, it seems. Certainly not this week.

On Thursday, the governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Corbett, grinnedas he compared, in a television interview, same-sex marriage to a brother marrying his sister.

Worse, football players and other students from Ole Miss reportedly heckled a Tuesday night performance of “The Laramie Project,” a play about a gay college student, Matthew Shepard, who was tortured and murdered in 1998. They yelled anti-gay slurs, including the three-letter f-bomb, the play’s director told the university newspaper.
