This might be a purely British sensibility, but those who I have spoken with who are vehemently opposed to it often seem to have a 'not in my neighbourhood' mentality - that it doesn't matter who the people are, it's simply that it's taboo.

And then there were those who have an irrational fear that once started, it'll 'Gay up the country' (actual words).
