As an example, go back and look how the meaning of "gay" has change in to 200 years.
I think if you say
"He is a gay man" 200 years ago it would be taken in a completely different manner than it is today.
I highly suspect that the founding fathers would have nothing against a gay man but would have a lot against a homosexual man.
