* [[http://www.idrewthis.org/d/20040308.html This]] strip of ''Webcomic/IDrewThis'' features a StrawHypocrite who wants gay marriage banned but claim that "I'm not against gay people, I'm just for traditional marriage"... quickly followed by a flashback of historical guys who are against women and black people being allowed to vote but claim to simply be "for traditional gender roles" and "I'm not against black people, I'm just for traditional slavery!"

* ''ComicBook/ChickTracts'': Several tracts are about homosexuals being possessed by demons or generically evil. Sometimes fetish clothes and BDSM tools are used to show just how "evil" the gays are. Heterosexual BDSM doesn't seem to exist in the world of Chick.
** He really went overboard with this trope in the [[AuthorTract tract]] called [[http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/1070/1070_01.asp Uninvited]]: The tract features a nurse who harasses dying AIDS-patients for their "crime" of being gay. Of course, [[SoulsavingCrusader her actions are fully justified within the verse of the tract]], since this is an {{anvilicious}}ly bigoted AuthorTract. The real kick? It turns out that all the homosexuals became homosexual because they were sexually molested as children. More to the point, when a child gets sexually molested, she automatically becomes unclean, possessed by a demon of defilement. The trope DefiledForever is played straight for everyone who isn't both TheFundamentalist ''and'' a Christian. Averted for all characters who are (or become) HolierThanThou.

* DCComics have been dropping clues about this over the last five years or so, with the accompanying crusaders. Brad Meltzer has hinted more than once that there's a homosexual underground within the DCU villain community, and that being outed would result in being killed by some of the more dangerous racist villains. [[JokerImmunity Unless you're so incredibly scary that even manly macho men are terrified of you, that is.]]

* The infamous ''Perversion For Profit'' from 1965 (see [[Quotes/HeteronormativeCrusader the quotes page]]) isn't truly about homosexuality or sadomasochism as much as it's a general plea for the virtue of censorship and the evils of free speech. However, they [[ValuesDissonance assume that the audience has a unhesitating hatred for homosexuals and sadomasochists]], and thus [[AcceptableTargets mention these minorities several times in order to make the attack on freedom of speech appear more legitimate]].

* ''TabletopGame/TheDarkEye'': The goddess Travia is, by some, portrayed as this. However, the sources leave enough room to interpret her as just in favour of monogamy. She's the goddess of home, hearth and family, but some tribes just consider her the goddess of family loyalty and hearth, so one can easily interpret her as giving her blessings to a homosexual marriage with adopted children. As long as they're faithful, it's within her ideals. (The setting leaves some room for interpretation, anyway, as some gods accept completely different forms of worship. Boron, god of death, gives his blessing to both the silent, earnest and humble followers in the north, and the drug-addled, decadent folks who sacrifice humans to him in the south.)

* ''TabletopGame/ScarredLands'': The LawfulNeutral god Hedrara and LawfulEvil god Chardun are both merciless bastards with harsh and arbitrary laws condemning love, sexuality, and, well positive emotions in general. Hedrara is the one most prone to discriminate against homosexuals and promiscuous people. The laws of Hedrara's holy city Hedrad have the death penalty for homosexual love and heterosexual promiscuity. It even has strict punishments for ''public hugging''. Granted, this city also kills monogamous heterosexuals who enter relationships without getting the blessing of the church first. However, as a monogamous heterosexual, you ''can'' get the blessing of the church, while homosexuals and promiscuous people cannot. Storytelling-wise, the blatantly homophobic etc. laws of Hedrad are used to highlight that the god Hedrara is in fact NOT a ''good'' god.

** And then a third episode where he had to learn to accept that some HeteronormativeCrusaders are just intolerant: there's no FreudianExcuse, ArmoredClosetGay, or even (as was the case for him) ignorance about homosexuality being contagious or a choice. These folks understand what being gay means and just ''hate'' it.

Added DiffLines:

* On ''Series/{{Empire}}'', Lucious falls into this trope regarding his gay son Jamal. Lucious miustreats him from the beginning, even putting him in a trashcan when he acted effeminately as a child. He begins to grudgingly accept Jamal's sexuality in season 2, as long as he's not directly confronted with it. [[spoiler: However, when he walks in on Jamal alone with a closeted record producer, Lucious loses his cool and tells Jamal that he is a disappointment and he'll be celebrating when Jamal finally dies of AIDS.]]

** Another episode revolving around gay marriage has Reverend Lovejoy give a very passive-agressive remark about how he "has no opinion for or against your sinful lifestyle" while explaning why he wont perform gay marriages after the city legalizes them. Homer, sensing money to be made, flips on his usual semi-homophobic attitude and has himself ordained as a minister.

* [[http://www.amazon.de/Gottes-Bodenpersonal-Eine-unwahrscheinliche-Liebesgeschichte-ebook/dp/B00S189Q1C This]] German book defies the trope, by introducing a Christian character who rallies against the evils of prostitution, and gets on the nerves of the hooker who is offering her services nearby. When said hooker is attacked by a customer, because [[GayPanic she is a pre-operation transsexual]], the Christian intervenes and gets himself beaten up in the process. The hooker (lying on the ground at that point) is worried that she'll get the gay panic, too, but no, when he sees that he hooker's skirt is damaged and ... things show, he just covers the hooker with his jacket. Turns out he's not even a "love the sinner, hate the sin" kind of person, but thinks homosexuality is perfectly okay. He just doesn't like prostitution because money already rules the world in too many ways.

* [[http://www.neatorama.com/neat/worst-sin.htm This]] [[{{Narm}} highly amusing]] tract on the supposed deadly results of [[ADateWithRosiePalms masturbation]].
** These were widespread in the 19th and early 20th century. They were produced by doctors who witnessed deeply disturbed mental patients masturbating chronically, and mistook cause and effect rather thoroughly.
** In this case, the doctor appears to have not noticed the individual was suffering from syphilis. Masturbation can't give you syphilis, seeing as it's a sexually ''transmitted'' disease.
