I agree. Unfortunately, far too many people are still homophobic, and think that its ok to treat them as less than human beings because they “choose” to be gay. Ummm hello people, you are born with a specific sexual preference!!! It really steams me when people act that way, so I know how you are feeling. I would just ask them to refrain from making derogatory comments about people in front of you, since you obviously do not share the same attitude

Ohhh, homophobes. This is probably best left ignored unless they actually say something to you. If they do I would not hesitate to say exactly what you just said. If they don’t like it they can excercise some tact, bite their snarky tongues and look the other direction.

I’d make it known that any and all snarky, rude, improper attitudes towards ANY ONE is off limits at your wedding.  It is a day of TRUCES and anyone who breaks the Golden Rule will be kicked out. 😉

Just make sure you have it passed around (especially amongst his family) in a tactful, polite manner. 

Other than that, wait until they say something to you, your FI, or your friends.  THEN step in and smack ’em down. 😉

This is a time to play your emotions with intelligence.  Before the wedding, just like @Ryna wrote, be tactful about your comments but let everyone know that love shall be the only emotion to your FH and yourself; and all guests in attendance.  Any negative attitudes are not welcome, regardless of the importance of the guest (i.e. FMIL).

At the wedding, if there is hate, you have that hate removed.  And after, feel free to point out that their ignorant behaviour marked your special day and that was behaviour they CHOOSED to convey, unlike the sexual preferences of your friends.

…this kind of h8 just gives me rage….
