Having trouble getting your unpopular waterfront development approved by the local council? Just point the finger and accuse your opponents of homophobia:

...the couple says (the dispute) has included a gay hate campaign against them... An opponent of the development, local councillor Rodney Cooper, denied he was homophobic, telling ABC Radio he feared the development would turn Penguin into "another carbon copy of many places down the southeast border of Australia now".
By the way, when did you stop beating your wife?

Update: More bullying fails:

A TRIBUNAL has cited free speech in dismissing a complaint that broadcaster John Laws vilified homosexuals. The complaint was made by gay rights activist Gary Burns after Laws called US Queer Eye For the Straight Guy star Carson Kressley a “pillow biter” and “pompous little pansy prig” during a show in 2004.
