Why the 'We Can't Teach About LGBT History for Religious Reasons' Argument Makes No Sense Whatsoever

As a history teacher, I cherish history and know the importance of all people's history. However, when it comes to teaching LGBT history, many so-called religious people always pull out the religious card... and that makes no sense whatsoever. Consider that most historical figures (even many presidents) were either murderers, adulterers, brutes... or worse. Which means that they are not just a sinner (like an LGBT person, apparently), but, they broke a commandment which is far worse. So, I did my best to destroy that logic once and for all.
