With all due respect, as a witch, I have a problem with equating political opposition to gay rights with the Burning Times. Thousands of men, women, and children were put to the stake, stoned, or drowned, all for no other reason than their religious beliefs. Even now, there are Christian sects that, like the Holocaust, wish to mitigate, and deny that these atrocities never happened.
I don't mean to minimize the plight of homosexuals in modern society, but to equate their plight with the burning times would be rather like equating it with Hitler's ovens. I'm pretty sure that Jews would probably take offense to that analogy.
