Not true. He called her motives, ethical and financial, into question, in strong terms. He had just spent an hour listening to her denigrate his morals, his lifestyle, the commitment and love he has experienced, the essence of who he is. It wasn't until that point that he turned the tables on her. He didn't get personal, he didn't attack her. He disagreed with her, in her own language.
As a listener, I had spent that hour listening to her spout her hate speech about homosexuals, couched in her calm, reasonable, "I'm just saying what everybody else thinks and knows is true" words. It was appalling, and I was relieved to hear him stand up to her in the end. We should all be doing that.
