    Now just wait for the bible bashers to state Danny is coming to blow all LBGT sinners away and is a gift from God, whilst the LBGT claim its coming to wash the bigots away and it may be from a force for greater good. Personally would prefer the latter, sick and tired of hearing the former try to justify their hatred by means of the bible. In their hands it turns into the bile-able.
