An interesting rhetorical development

The president of Brazil, the odious Luiz Lula, has said that he will pass legislation to "criminalize words and acts offensive to homosexuality".

But observe the way he has used the noun 'homosexuality'. He has used it, not to describe an "orientation", but in the way one would describe a religion.

Stick "Catholicism" or "Judaism" in there and you will see what I mean.
