Enter at your risk: No “Born This Way” memorabilia at these houses of worship

In an exclusive special report on same-sex marriage, we reported that much of the anti-gay rhetoric being echoed in the form of sound bytes and quick Facebook rants were not coming from Hollywood superstars or even Republican politicians, but that it was coming from religious zealots and staunch traditionalists. After doing a little fact-checking and Google digging, we’re happy to report a handful of churches you should avoid at all costs if you are gay or are a supporter of equal rights. You’ll probably get a good dose of Jesus and a good song-and-dance on your visit this Sunday, but you’ll probably leave with an anti-gay hickey on your neck. From our reporting, it looks like Texas and North Carolina are the most plentiful of these kind of institutions. And although Westboro Baptist Church deserves a special placement on this list, we decided to unearth some of the other holier-than-thou universities with similar track records.

Without further ado, here’s a short list of worship centers that may give you a bad case of homophobia.
