Serious Question

There seems to be a debate about whether or not it is okay to reveal that someone is gay if that person hasn’t admitted to being gay. Some people say it is never okay to “out” someone against their wishes, while others say that it is permissible if the person is a politician who votes against the interests of the gay community.

I suppose there could be circumstances where the latter logic applies to someone who isn’t a politician. Perhaps, if someone was prone to making anti-gay comments and harassing gay people, it would be allowable to expose their hypocrisy.

I don’t know.

I think hypocrisy is a very significant character flaw, and I think Jesus of Nazareth agreed with me.
